The Washington City Council chose their next city attorney at last night’s meeting. Out of the three finalists, Cedar Rapids based law firm Lynch Dallas and attorney Kevin Olson received the most consideration. The council ultimately chose Olson, who currently serves as city attorney in Coralville and West Branch.  Mayor Sandra Johnson and Councilman Merle Hagie will meet with Olson to negotiate his contract at a time yet to be determined.
