The city of Las Vegas hires an outside attorney to serve as the city attorney. The person hired (Carlos Quiñones) is not local. His office is in Santa Fe and from what I read and hear he is paid on a fee basis — time and expense. The Optic indicates Mr. Quiñones was paid the sum of $147,000 last year and this compares with $80,000 paid to the previous city attorney for the period of one year.
