Posted in Fountain Government

The Fountain City Council met on August 4, 2016 with all council members present.

The first order of business was to hear from Dwight Luhmann from Luhmann Law, LLC in Preston, Minn.

Luhmann expressed to the council that he would be interested in doing work for the city as the city is without an attorney at this time.

Luhmann has been practicing law in Preston since 2003, where he began with David Joerg prior to opening his own practice. He handles prosecutions for the City of Rushford and does prosecution and civil work for the City of Preston. Luhmann charges a rate of $130/Hr. for his services.
