A Springfield employee since 2007 has been named deputy city attorney.

Jan Millington, an assistant city attorney, was promoted to succeed Rhonda Lewsader, who took on the city attorney job last year after the exit of Frank Romines. Millington has worked largely with the departments of Public Works and Environmental Services on environmental issues, according to a news release.

"I am honored to be appointed deputy city attorney and to support City Attorney Rhonda Lewsader in her role of providing quality legal support to the City Council," Millington said in the release.

The deputy city attorney, according to SpringfieldMo.gov, assists the city attorney in all of the legal affairs of council and the municipality. Millington’s salary for the position is $130,624, according to a city spokesperson.

Before joining the city, Millington worked as an associate with the firm now known as Hall Ansley PC. She also has experience as a law clerk for the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals in Oklahoma City, according to the release.
