JOLIET – City Attorney Jeff Plyman has announced he plans to retire.

Plyman will step down once a replacement is found, City Councilman Jim McFarland confirmed Friday.

The job opening was posted by the city Friday afternoon.

The position, which will pay between $113,000 and $155,000, reports directly to the city manager.

A complete job description is available from the city’s human resource division.
