Berne Mayor William McKean has named James Beitler as the city attorney to top a list of appointments announced this week by the incoming mayor.
Beitler, a longtime attorney in Berne, is a partner with David Baumgartner in the law office of Baumgartner and Beitler. He formerly served as city attorney under the tenure of Mayor Blaine Fulton. He will take over the position from Bob Biberstein, who served for more than six years in the administration of former mayor John Minch.
