City of Bryan officials didn't have to look very far to find a new city attorney.
City council members unanimously approved appointing Janis Hampton to permanently fill the position.
Hampton had been serving as the interim city attorney since September when Michael Consentino left for a job in San Marcos.
"I'm really excited about the new position," Hampton said. "I'm greatly honored at having the council's support, and I'm really delighted."
Hampton has more than 20 years of civil litigation experience in both the state and federal courts, as well as ten years of municipal law experience.
