The Lincoln City Council has named Bruce Cline as the Interim City Attorney while the City recruits for its first City_Attorneyin-house City Attorney. Lincoln's current city attorney, Mona Ebrahimi of Kronick, Moskovitz. Tiedemann & Girard (KMTG), will be leaving her post mid-July.

Cline has over 23 years of municipal legal experience serving as the City Attorney for the City of Folsom and Senior Deputy City Attorney for the City of Sacramento. He is currently an independent contractor specializing in municipal legal work, and provides assistance to the cities of Rocklin and Folsom. He retired from the City of Folsom in 2016.

“Bruce has the specialized skills necessary to manage the City’s legal office while the City searches for a permanent in-house attorney,” said Lincoln City Manager Matthew Brower. “We are extremely fortunate he is willing to serve as our Interim City Attorney during the recruitment process.”

Cline has agreed to serve as Lincoln’s Interim City Attorney dedicating 20 to 30 hours per week effective July 13th, and will help to ensure a smooth transition to a permanent in-house attorney.

On June 8th, the City was notified by KMTG that they would be withdrawing from providing legal services to the City by July 31st, stating their decision was based on the City’s rapid growth which requires full-time attention of at least one attorney dedicated exclusively to Lincoln.

The City recruitment deadline for the in-house attorney is July 14th, and plans are to have an in-house attorney on staff within 60 to 90 days.
