The Caledonia Village Board was hand-delivered a letter of resignation by Village Attorney Aaron Szeto on behalf of his employer, Nicolosi & Associates, LLC, May 15.
Szetos letter, addressed to Village President Susan Siek and trustees, states: Our office has determined it cannot continue to adequately represent the Village and provide it with full and complete legal services given the Villages decision to restrict the ability of our office to perform necessary legal work relating to matters which come before the Village Board.
The resignation of Nicolosi & Associates as village attorneys is effective upon adjournment of the Boards June meeting. Meantime, the firm is taking steps to withdraw its representation of Caledonia in litigation concerning Boone County Windfarms.
Paul S. Nicolosi and Village Clerk Sue Yakey were carbon-copied on the letter. Nicolosi did not respond to requests for comment.
