On July 15, 2014, the City Council appointed Leslie V. Batchelor as the new City Attorney
for the City of The Village. Ms. Batchelor, however, is no stranger to The Village. She has
served as Legal Counsel for The Village Development Authority since 2006. In that
capacity, she has been instrumental in helping the City create two Urban Renewal Districts
and three Tax Increment Districts. These in turn have provided the legal structure and
incentives to purchase and redevelop the Vintage Lake Apartments and to bring Uptown Grocery to The Village. Ms. Batchelor replaces Stephen E. Reel, who retired at the end of June after 42 years of service with The Village.
