SPENCERVILLE — Spencerville Village Solicitor Al Smith’s resignation was under question Monday during the village council meeting. Smith resigned in September but said he would stay on until the village found a replacement.
As reported during the Nov. 4 council meeting, Johnson said that after receiving Smith’s resignation letter in September, he had been in contact with other municipalities inquiring about legal representation. He said the trend is that municipalities do not have one main solicitor and they use firms with multiple attorneys since many attorneys do not have the time to dedicate themselves to one municipality.
