The City of Faribault names Eckberg Lammers as City Prosecutor

December 17, 2014 - Faribault, MN: In October, city administrators began a competitive process to fill the position in order to streamline its complaint and prosecutorial processes, and renew relationships within the Rice County court system. Eckberg Lammers was recently selected from five proposing firms. They currently serve as the city prosecutor in neighboring Northfield as well as more than 10 eastern Twin City metro communities. Faribault Police Chief Andy Bohlen told the council members that his Northfield counterpart Chief Monte Nelson highly recommended the firm, adding that "Eckberg Lammers has brought positive energy, renewed relationships with officers, challenged judges in Rice County, provided timely legal updates and have a solid team approach."

Tom Weidner will act as the primary chief prosecutor, with Rebecca Christensen taking on lead prosecutor duties. Joe Van Thomme and Tom Lehmann will assist on special cases.

Christensen told the councilors that the firm is honored to represent the city. “We were very excited to read Chief Bohlen’s letter and we look forward to partnering [with the city],” she said. “We want to hit the ground running.” Eckberg Lammers will begin working with the city January 5, 2015.
