Jacksonville Beach City Attorney Update (3/26/21)

On March 25, 2021, the Jacksonville Beach City Council held a special meeting to discuss the City Attorney Employment Agreement, Engagement of Special Legal Counsel, and Continuity of Legal Services for the city. 

All topics were discussed at length by the City Council, who understand the gravity of the situation and have the best intentions for Jacksonville Beach and all City Staff.

The City Attorney (Mr. Ambrosio) has been placed on Administrative Leave and City Staff were instructed to prepare a resolution for termination of the employment agreement. The process is governed by the City’s Charter (Chapter VI, Section 34) and ensures a proper, due process that protects the City.

During this difficult and complicated time City Council, Administration, and Staff have worked diligently to ensure that the organization remains dedicated to our mission of being a “responsive government focused on safety, service, and sustainability.” We will communicate necessary updates to the public as the situation changes and evolves.
