Palm Coast will begin the next step in its search for a new city attorney in the next two weeks.

At the Feb. 6 Palm Coast City Council meeting, Mayor David Alfin asked the other council member for and received a consensus to bring the four requests for proposals the city has received for the position forward for presentation. Alfin asked the RFPs be presented to council within the next two weeks.

“We are in a position now to move forward with our search for counsel for attorney,” Alfin said. “I'd like to keep it going. And there would be no sense to procrastinate at this point in time.”

Former City Attorney Neysa Borkert left the position in December for another in-house position at her firm, Garganese, Weiss, D’Agresta & Salzman, P.A. The law firm has represented Palm Coast in city meetings since 2008 but is unable to supply another dedicated person to function as the city’s attorney in Borkert’s place.

Since Borkert left, several attorneys from the firm have represented the city during its meetings while city staff put together bids from new law firms. The bid period can take between 21-45 days.
