From Luben to Chambers

By  | 

The vote to exercise the termination of former City Attorney William Luben was as swift as the vote to appoint Interim City Attorney William Chambers

Chambers' tenure has been brief, but city council members have noticed his work.

"It's going to be a learning curve for all of us working together,” says Mayor Humphrey. “He's been in the office and been the second in charge for a considerable amount of time, so we're looking forward to getting to know him a little bit better."

Chambers' will have plenty of time to acquaint himself with council members and others within Casper's city government, but it will take time to eclipse William Luben's nearly 20 year tenure.

The decision seems abrupt after making news towards the end of last week.

It’s a decision that former and current council members haven't seen within the last 20 years.

Luben's termination was effective as of 5:00pm last Thursday.

Interim city attorney William Chambers declined to comment on the matter at this time.
