Macomb Renews Legal Contract

Macomb, IL – Macomb will continue to be represented by the same law firm for another year, but not everyone on the city council supported the decision. The contract with March, McMillan & DeJoode was approved on a vote of 6-1. Alderman Tim Lobdell opposed it. He says $200,000 is too much to pay and he would like the city to explore other options. Alderman John Maguire says it would be nice if the city's legal representation cost less but feels that's not an option right now. He says the firm has done a good job of tackling a backlog of legal work that needs to be done
