South Gate : William Rudell to Be Interim City Attorney

May 31, 1990

William B. Rudell, who was hired last month as a special legal counsel, has been named interim city attorney for the city of South Gate. Rudell, 50, was unanimously appointed Tuesday by the City Council to replace Bruce Boogaard, who resigned May 25 to become chief attorney for the city of Chula Vista.

The new city attorney is a lawyer with the Los Angeles firm of Richards, Watson & Gershon. He will be paid $145 an hour.

Rudell will work on an interim basis for four to six months to evaluate the legal needs of the city before a final decision is made on the position, Mayor Robert A. Philipp said.

Before joining the law firm, Rudell was the city attorney for Burbank for three years. He was also on the Burbank City Council from 1973 to 1977. He was mayor of Burbank from 1975 to 1976.

He has a bachelor's degree from Princeton University and a law degree from Yale University.
