Quick Thought of the Day


Council shall have the following additional powers:

a. to employ or retain its own staff and consultants including a city clerk and an attorney qualified to practice law before the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, who may act as legal advisor to council, and may represent council as a body in legal proceedings. Council's attorney shall not represent the City as a municipal corporation in any legal proceeding;

I don't see the word "solicitor". Good thing we've settled upon a "legal parliamentarian" or whatever. Also, there may be a distinction between "represent council as a body in legal proceedings" and "litigate".
