Channels of Communication

The City Attorney prepares some and reviews all legal documents presented to the City Council and the Planning Commission. The typical legal documents pertaining to City business include:

  • Agreements
  • Contracts
  • Franchises
  • Ordinances
  • Resolutions

Agreements, contracts, and franchises bind the City to future courses of action with other parties. Ordinances are used to adopt laws. Resolutions are used to set forth Council policies.
