GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP) - Greenwood attorney Don Brock Jr. wears a lot of hats these days.

The Greenwood Commonwealth reports (https://bit.ly/1kFdsY0)Brock is a private practice attorney, Greenwood city attorney, GreenwoodLeflore Airport attorney, GreenwoodLeflore Industrial Board and attorney for the Greenwood Convention and Visitors Bureau.

On Tuesday, the Greenwood City Council will decide if Brock will become the city’s special prosecutor for housing and other code violations.

If approved, Brock will replace longtime special prosecutor Whit Mounger, who retired in December.

Mayor Carolyn McAdams says the decision to combine Brock’s duties as city attorney and those of the special prosecutor just made sense.

The mayor described the consolidation of the positions as a “soft cost savings,” for the city in that a new hire for the position would require health insurance and other benefits that Brock already enjoys.
