Statesboro City Council reached an agreement Tuesday to offer a vacated city attorney position to one of two final candidates for the job. J. Alvin Leaphart IV accepted an opportunity to become legal counselor for the City of Statesboro when offered the job over phone shortly after council’s scheduled morning meeting, according to Jeff Grant, Director of Human Resources. Leaphart, who for the previous eleven years operated The Leaphart Law Firm, LLC in Conyers and Statesboro (since 2010), will fill the void created by former City Attorney Sam Brannen’s death in January and the departure of staff attorney Michael Graves in September.
