Menifee Mayor Scott Mann has accepted the resignation of city attorney Joseph Fletcher, city officials announced Monday in a news release.

The resignation of Fletcher, effective Dec. 12, is the second departure of a city staff member since the election of new council members Nov. 6. City manager Bill Rawlings and the city parted ways Nov. 20, before the new council members were seated.

"The entire council was clear in its conclusion that irrespective of the high quality of my professional reputation and track record of valuable performance over the past year, it desires that it be free to select a new city attorney to serve this city council," Fletcher stated in a letter to Mann.

Fletcher had served the city in that capacity for about a year. He worked on a contract basis as a general counsel.

An agenda item on a special city council meeting Wednesday at 5 p.m. calls for a closed session to address the hiring of an interim city attorney. The proposed agreement, according to the agenda, is with Julie Biggs of Aleshire & Wynder to act as interim city attorney.

"Mr. Fletcher has done good work for the City of Menifee and we wish him well," Mann said in the news release. "As we look to Menifee's future, it's important that we put together the right team of people that will work with this city council to meet our goals of building a safe, financially solid, community-oriented city."
