Changing of the guard
Newton welcomes new city attorney
For more than a decade, Newton City Attorney Darrin Hamilton served the city. Tomorrow, his contract will be terminated. To replace him, the Newton City Council hired Brick Gentry P.C., a Des Moines law firm.
Representing the city will be Matt Brick, who has been with the firm since 1998 and became a partner in 2005. Brick said the firm worked as city attorney for a number of cities before, and the transition period has been smooth.
“The transition was great,” Brick said. “The outgoing city attorney is great. We have been emailing back and forth. We represent a lot of counties around the state. It’s very typical that cities post (about these) opportunities. We lucked out and it was quite an honor.”
