James D. Tresmond has resigned as the attorney for the Hamburg Central School District.

Tresmond’s appointment in July had drawn criticism because the district did not seek proposals from other legal firms. Some also criticized the appointment because this was the first school district Tresmond represented.

But Tresmond, who is a certified school administrator and served as principal of the former Masten Park Secure Center, said he was well-qualified to be the district’s lawyer. Tresmond said the board and he agreed to terminate his contract Dec. 31.

The School Board is expected to vote tonight on hiring a new lawyer for the school district.
