The City of Bowman’s former City Attorney is now working with the city again.
During Monday’s Bowman City Council meeting, a motion was approved to hire Attorney Douglas Kidd as the city’s new legal council.
According to Bowman City Mayor Pete Gibbons, only one bid was received for the job, and that was from Kidd.
At last night’s meeting, Gibbons read what Kidd said was included in his bid.
“I will do the following for $1,250 per month; I will give legal advice to the council, attend all meetings and return phone calls within 24 hours of the phone call, and defend lawsuits against the city that are not covered by insurance”, listed Gibbons.
Gibbons said he felt this was a good bid, and that it would save the city more money than what it was costing for the legal council of former attorney Andrea Grant.
“So this bid will save us some money, and I think Mr. Kidd did a great job for us before, and I think he has learned a lot since then, and I think he will be a valuable addition to us at this time”, said Gibbons.
The vote to approve the bid passed with a unanimous 3-0 vote, with Councilwoman Gwen Bryant not present during last night’s meeting.
