South Lake Tahoe City Attorney Patrick Enright will not seek to renew his contract with the city and will leave the position this spring, according to a letter he wrote to the South Lake Tahoe City Council this month.
His last day with the city will be May 31 unless he notifies the council at an earlier date, according to the letter.
Why Enright is leaving is unknown. He did not return a request for comment Wednesday afternoon.
"I have enjoyed working for the City and appreciate the support provided me during my tenure as City Attorney for the City," according to the letter. "It has been pleasure and honor to serve as the City Attorney for South Lake Tahoe. It has been a pleasure to work with all of you, and I wish each of you the best in the future."
Enright was hired as deputy city attorney in May 2009 and took over as city attorney in September 2009 following a dispute between the City Council and previous City Attorney Jacqueline Mittelstadt.
