A final vote is now expected next week on Mayor Mike Houston’s pick to be the city’s next corporation counsel.
Todd Greenburg spent more time Tuesday night answering questions from aldermen who wanted to know how he would have handled some of the past issues that created friction between the city council and prior city attorneys. Greenburg says, unlike Mark Cullen, he would have notified the mayor and aldermen of a police contract change that ultimately led to last year’s file shredding scandal.
But he agreed with John Mehlick’s decision not to give aldermen copies of key records in the lawsuit that resulted from the file destruction. Greenburg says he would have let aldermen review them in his office.
