Four members of the city council’s general investigating and ethics committee unanimously approved moving forward to the full council the recommendation for Kirkland & Ellis LLP and ex-U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox to handle the review.
The job would include producing a report to explain how and why the files were deleted as well as issues with the city’s IT department’s data management practices. The firm would also offer recommendations going forward.
It’s not immediately clear Thursday when the council will vote on whether to approve the firm.
