mentioned as issues to be seriously considered in hiring a new City Attorney. <br /> The City Manager then recommended the following schedule and process. The end of <br /> this week letters would be sent to certain attorneys and firms who were thought to be <br /> interested, calls would be made and advertisements would be placed in the local law <br /> journals of Santa Clara, San Mateo and Alameda Counties. It was also suggested that <br /> the City Attorney's Department of the League of California Cities be contacted as a <br /> possible source of references. Applicants would be given approximately two weeks to <br /> respond after which they would be screened by a panel including the City Manager , <br /> the City Attorney and one other person (outside of the Town and preferably from a <br /> small city). The final stage would be the interview of three or four candidates by the <br /> City Council. It was agreed that special Council Meetings for these interviews would <br /> be scheduled for 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 14 and Thursday, February <br /> 15. It was also agreed that after the interviews on the 15th a closed session would be <br /> held to discuss the next step. Council requested that in addition to resumes and <br /> references, the applicants be asked to include a cover letter stating their interest and <br /> reasons for applying for the position. The Mayor noted that she believed it was <br /> important for the City Attorney to be present at Planning Commission Meetings but <br /> others commented on the cost and suggested that the City Attorney be available to <br /> attend the Commission Meetings for certain issues. <br /> 3. ADJOURNMENT <br /> There being no further new or old business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned at <br /> 7:05 p.m. <br /> Respectfully submitted, <br /> Patricia Dowd <br /> City Clerk <br /> January 3, 1990 <br /> 2 <br />
