Brenham Contracts For City Attorney Job

By  | 

The Brenham city council is searching for a new city attorney. Former city attorney, Randall Patterson was laid off Thursday because the city is going to contract his job to a private firm.

The council made that choice in a 5 to 2 vote.

Officials said the move will reorganize city operations and save them money.

In the next two months, the city council is expected to consider more lay-offs in an effort to trim spending by 5%. A list of positions to be considered for the cuts is still in the making.
