Town attorney will retire next year

Oct. 15. It looks like veteran Town Attorney Bill Brown will retire at the end of the first quarter next year. Brown, who graduated from UNC School of Law in 1979, also serves as the town attorney for Cramerton. Prior to that, he was a partner in the Parker, Poe law firm in Charlotte and practiced municipal law for various municipal clients going back to the early 1980s.

Brown’s position is part-time, but the town will look at such options as full time, part-time or even a firm that would provide legal advice. Brown, who reports to the Town Board, is paid $125,000 annually.
