WATERTOWN — The city will soon begin its search for a new attorney after learning Monday night that Robert J. Slye will be leaving the position after 30 years.

Mr. Slye told the City Council during an executive session that he will step down at the end of the year. He’ll be principal law clerk for state Supreme Court Judge James P. McClusky, whose clerk William F. Ramseier was elected state Supreme Court judge.
