I have to say that if an in-house counsel/attorney is not liked, that usually means he/she is doing the job they were hired to do. Mr. Melcher is a very competent counselor/attorney. COS is lucky to have him. And if you think he gets paid too much, just do the math. He gets paid around $90/hour. That is way under the going rate for an attorney which is usually around $250, but can go much higher depending on the services. Mr. Melcher is not the problem. Just for the record, I am not a friend of the city attorney and have only met him a few times. I am just using common sense. So, lets stop pointing fingers and start working together. People, Council & Mr. Mayor!
