North Adams Committee Reviewing Mechanism for Legal Opinions

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council has a right to counsel — but the General Government Committee is weighing how much is enough. 
 
The council had objected last year when the city switched over to KP Law as city solicitor, limiting council members' access to the Boston law firm. The council members had been used to contacting former City Solicitor John B. DeRosa, who'd been kept on retainer for 35 years before stepping down in March 2018.
 
Instead, the council had been limited to requesting opinions through the administration, which often provided answers based on state law but not on a legal opinion from the solicitor. Councilors were particularly irate last year that the administrative officer, who does not have a legal degree, should determine whether a query required an attorney's response.
 
They had pointed to the city's ordinances that state the solicitor "shall also appear as counsel" to governmental bodies or departments when requested by the City Council.
