Marion Common Council did the right thing by asking its attorney to decide whether to represent the city or county, but not both.

Phil Stephenson was serving as the attorney representing the Grant County Council, Marion Common Council, the Grant County Auditor, the Marion Municipal Airport Board of Commissioners and the towns of Fairmount and Fowlerton before he stepped down from the city council position recently. As Marion Common Council President Deb Cain noted, the city council has fiscal oversight of the airport, so it makes sense to remove any possibility of conflicting interests at this point in time.
