The Herndon Town Council is looking to appoint a new deputy town attorney at a meeting next week.
The position was created during the fiscal year 2020 budget cycle in order to help manage the workload of the town attorney’s office.
“The Town Attorney’s Office is extremely busy, as the town has grown and embarked on projects requiring legal review and consultation,” Anne Curtis, the town’s chief communications officer, told Reston Now. “This new position reflects a need for additional inhouse legal resources.”
At a Tuesday, July 9 meeting, the council will consider a resolution to appoint Lauri Sigler to fill the new position.
The position is effective July 22 to “serve at the direction and under the supervision of the Town Attorney,” according to the resolution. The salary range is between $85,000 and $115,000.
The current town attorney is Lesa Yeatts, who was hired in 2015 to replace Richard Kaufman, the town’s legal attorney of more than 20 years.
