Ingersoll will have a new environmental lawyer to represent the town's interests through Walker Environmental Group's proposed landfill process.
Less than a month after council passed a resolution to retain the legal expertise of environmental lawyer Rodney V. Northey of Fogler, Rubinoff LLP, Northey resigned his position at the firm and is no longer able to act as legal representation for the town, according to a press release issued by the town Wednesday, May 8.
“Northey has confirmed that following his departure from Fogler, Rubinoff LLP he will have a conflict of interest which will render him unable to act for the Town of Ingersoll in cases involving the Walker Environmental Group and the proposed landfill,” the press release states.
Ingersoll CAO Darell Parker said the town continues to work with Fogler, Rubinoff LLP and retains expert and exclusive legal representation on this matter.
