The City of Rochester’s top government attorney is retiring. Corporation Counsel Brian Curran will retire at the end of the year.

Mayor Lovely Warren appointed Curran to the job in 2015 and she says Curran will be “sorely missed at City Hall, “ saying that while she is happy he will enjoy a well-deserved retirement, she will miss his service and says she always counted on him to provide sound advice on legal matters.

Curtin served as Bond Counsel to the city from 1994 to 2015 when he was appointed Deputy Corporation Counsel by Warren.
