Ex-Maumee law director hired as backup counsel


Sylvania Township hired former Maumee Law Director Sheila McAdams to handle legal issues when its primary counsel, the Lucas County Prosecutor’s Office, has a conflict of interest in representing another government body.

At its Tuesday night meeting, the trustees hired Ms. McAdams at a rate of $180 per hour. Township Administrator John Zeitler recommended the hire saying that private counsel would be required when the prosecutor’s office had a conflict of interest representing another group, for example the Lucas County Commissioners.

In the last several months the Lucas County Commissioners approved the city of Sylvania’s petition to annex three properties from Sylvania Township because they are in the city water district. That includes the March approval of annexation for the 1.7-acre site of a Sunoco filling station at the southeast corner of Erie Street and Centennial Road.
