The City of Joplin has a new City Attorney. Mayor Mike Seibert made the announcement on the KZRG Morning News Watch today (7/28/14):
"Last week, the Council went through an interviewing process, and at the end we decided to offer the full time position of City Attorney to the Interim City Attorney, Peter Edwards."
Edwards replaced Brian Head, who left his post in April to take a job as the City Attorney for Lee's Summit. Seibert says the appointment will become official in an upcoming City Council meeting.
