The council had authorized city staff to request proposals from law firms interested in filling the position and proposals were received from the law firms of Flaherty and Hood PA of St. Paul; Anderson, Larson, Hanson and Saunders PLLP of Willmar; and Couri and Ruppe PLLP of St. Michael.

A four-member committee of City Administrator Charlene Stevens, Ronning, City Clerk-Treasurer Kevin Halliday and Planning and Development Director Bruce Peterson reviewed the applications and selected the Flaherty law firm and the Anderson law firm for interviews, said Halliday.

A representative or representatives from each firm will have 15 minutes for a presentation and council members will then ask questions.

Halliday said the council could make a decision Thursday night or ask city staff to do more research on the firms and make a decision at the March 19 meeting.
