Tusayan Hires New Attorneys

October 23, 2020

Tusayan’s current City Attorney, William Sims, is stepping down as the town’s contract lawyer. Pierce Coleman, based in Phoenix will be replacing Sims who has served Tusayan for nearly a decade.

The Town says Pierce Coleman will bill a flat rate rather than by the hour which the town hopes will save some money.

The Town’s legal costs remain exceedingly high for a town the size of Tusayan. For September and October Tusayan spent almost $60,000 for legal services in September and October. $30,000 of that went to Brownstein, Hyatt, Farber, Schreck. That’s the Washington DC firm lobbying the federal government to green light Stilo’s controversial development plan which would create nearly three million square feet of commercial space and thousands of homes to the area.

Here is a link to the town’s recent expenditures.
