MADEIRA BEACH -- The City Commission voted unanimously Tuesday morning to hire Tampa lawyer Richard A. Harrison as the new city attorney.
Commissioners tentatively settled on Harrison two weeks ago, though they met with him again last week to discuss the terms of their contract with him.
Harrison, 40, is from the Tampa firm Allen Dell Frank & Trinkle. Madeira Beach will pay a $2,000 monthly retainer, plus $175 an hour for representation in special projects or litigation.
Harrison replaces former City Attorney Andrew Salzman, who had represented Madeira Beach for four years. The City Commission in December decided against renewing its contract with Salzman.
