City Attorney

The City Council appoints the City Attorney to serve as "corporate" legal counsel to the City as an entity and advises the City Council and City staff on a broad range of municipal issues. These matters typically include:

  • Open meeting laws
  • Public record laws,
  • Conflicts of interests
  • Land use and environmental laws
  • Claims and litigation
  • Municipal elections
  • Employment and labor relations
  • Municipal utilities
  • Public works contracts
  • Code enforcement
  • Resolutions, ordinances and other legal documents

One full-time attorney and a full-time legal secretary staff the City Attorney's Office.
