The City of Cleveland Heights announced on Friday, April 11, that Anthony Farris has been selected as the final candidate for the law director position. Farris, a graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Law, has spent the majority of his career in municipal law with the City of Youngstown. He has held several positions including chief assistant prosecutor, deputy law director and law director.
