Red Boiling Springs Mayor Willie Brown verified last week that Christi Dalton has been hired as the new City Attorney, replacing former City Attorney Jon Wells, and City of Lafayette Mayor Richard Driver announced the resignation of City Attorney Jon Wells last Friday, February 28.
According to Mayor Brown, the decision to replace Wells was made in a special called meeting held Monday, February 24. Attorney Wells served as the City Attorney in Red Boiling Springs for approximately nine years. Mayor Brown had no comment on the council’s decision to replace Wells.
Dalton began her career as an attorney in 1996 and opened her practice in Macon County in 2008.
“I look forward to serving the City of Red Boiling Springs and appreciate this opportunity,” she commented.
Lafayette’s Mayor Driver said Wells’ letter of Resignation stated that since he is retiring from private practice, he has decided to also retire as the City Attorney.
Mayor Driver will appoint a new City Attorney, and it will be up to the City Council members to confirm his selection.
Wells’ resignation as the City Attorney for Lafayette and his replacement as the City Attorney of Red Boiling Springs follow his dismissal from the Lafayette Housing Authority (LHA) where he served as Executive Director, part-time for 33 years and full-time for the past 8 months.
The Lafayette Housing Authority will meet in a special called meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 4, to discuss and vote upon personnel actions related to Wells, and to select an Interim Executive Director.
