After 37 years working with the city of Tallahassee, City Attorney Jim English is retiring. Mayor John Marks thanked English for his service at Wednesday’s commission meeting, which was English's last on the job.
English started representing the city in the mid-1970s for his private practice. He was officially appointed city attorney about 30 years ago and has been serving at City Hall ever since.
During Wednesday’s meeting, former Tallahassee mayor and returning commissioner Scott Maddox said, English is the best city attorney in Florida.
