Hewitt City Council members hosted a special meeting Monday evening at City Hall to discuss the possibility of hiring a new city attorney.

One week after Hewitt City Council voted to remove longtime city attorney Charles Buenger , the board moved forward to find a new candidate.

Michael Dixon, lawyer and director of Haley and Olson Law Firm, was scheduled to be interview for the city attorney job Monday evening, but Dixon said that he was uncomfortable with the wording on the agenda and felt that it was best to not interview right then.

The city council says they’re now making plans for next week.
