Prescott names new interim city attorney

PRESCOTT - The Prescott City Council appointed former Coconino County Senior Civil Deputy Attorney Jean Wilcox as interim Prescott City Attorney during a special meeting Thursday.

Wilcox will begin the job today, replacing Eugene Neil, who served in the interim city attorney post since June. Neil had earlier indicated to the council that he would be unavailable to continue in the interim post after Dec. 20.

Wilcox retired from the Coconino position in September.

"I am a strong advocate of local and county government having worked closely with the cities of Flagstaff and Sedona, as well as other northern Arizona municipalities," Wilcox said.

Noting that Wilcox has a "strong background in government," Prescott Mayor Marlin Kuykendall said: "Speaking on behalf of the council, we are doubly pleased she has both accepted the position, and is a Prescott resident."

Wilcox served with Coconino County for 18 years prior to retiring, according to a news release from the city. She taught undergraduate business law at Northern Arizona University and graduate law with the University of Montana.

Wilcox earned her law degree from the University of Montana, and holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Colorado.

With Neil's departure this week, the City Council conducted a special executive session and public session Thursday morning to consider and appoint a new interim attorney.

The agenda stated that Wilcox would serve from Dec. 21 to Feb. 4, at an hourly rate of $135,

with an average workweek of 20 hours or less.

Jon Paladini, who has accepted the position of city attorney, is expected to assume the permanent position on Feb. 4.

Paladini will replace former City Attorney Gary Kidd, who retired from the job this past summer.
