GALVESTON — By the narrowest of margins, the city council on Tuesday voted to hire an attorney to investigate who at city hall might have released confidential documents to The Daily News.

In a pair of 4-3 votes, the council voted to retain Ross Fischer of the law firm Denton, Navarro, Rocha & Bernal as special council in the area of ethics and compliance and to direct him to investigate the source of a leak that led to The Daily News’ report last week on a legal opinion outlining the city’s possible challenges to public housing.
