Bloomington City attorney Todd Greenburg is retiring early next year. According to a letter jointly issued by Greenburg and the City of Bloomington, Greenberg will step down in mid Febrary. Greenburg became the city's lawyer in 1990. Of late there has been talk of a settlement in advance of Greenburg's departure. There was also a public spat between Greenburg and Mayor Tari Renner when Greenburg, by some accounts, misspoke and said the city would appeal an Attorney General's ruling that information must be made public concerning a police incident. Renner pointed out the City Council made policy, not Greenburg. Greenburg also said at the time he was recommending an appeal and did not mean to infringe on elected office holders. Greenburg was later placed on leave. Greenburg says he has been privileged to serve the citizens of Bloomington for 23 years. City Manager David Hales praises Greenburg's work for the city and says he will do well wherever his aspirations carry him. Hales notes that during Greenburg's 23 years he spearheaded innovative approaches to the regulation of chronic nuisance properties, created a first of its kind ordinance regulating parolee group homes, and argued cases before the Appellate and State Supreme Courts.
