ADRIAN Sarah Osburn was named city attorney Monday night by the Adrian board of commissioners.

Mr. Nelson, Adrian s attorney since 1981, was named city administrator last month.
At Mr. Nelson s recommendation, Ms. Osburn will serve in a full-time, staff capacity. He said the city will save $20,000 to $30,000 a year in attorney fees with Ms. Osburn on staff.
