York assistant solicitor leaves, city searches for replacement

The city’s full-time assistant solicitor has left to take another job, according to the mayor.

But York appears well on the way to finding Mark Elion’s replacement, Mayor Kim Bracey said.

Bracey said on Monday that Elion’s last day was on Friday, but added that the search for his replacement is well under way.

There are second interviews scheduled for later this week, Bracey said. While there’s no concrete timeline for finding a replacement, the city is “hoping to replace him as soon as possible,” she said.

The mayor did not provide details of Elion’s new job, but said he’s “continuing in the profession, and off to do more great things.”

Solicitor Don Hoyt remains in the city solicitor’s office in the interim, part-time.

Bracey said it’s always a challenge to keep good, young attorneys on a city staff.

“These guys, they’re bright attorneys definitely deserving of a whole lot more money,” she said.
