ALPINE - The City of Alpine needs to be on the hunt for a new city attorney since current city attorney Rod Ponton will be taking his new job as the 83rd District Attorney and will have to resign.

The Alpine City Council says they will start looking at finding a replacement at their next meeting.

Council Member Mike Davidson says they still plan on having their new city attorney review the employee hiring and dismissal policies.

That came about after questions were raised about Ponton's fine by the Texas Ethics Commission for filing papers late in the election.
