City Attorney

The City Attorney's Office is responsible for the general legal affairs of the City. This office provides legal representation and advice to the City Council, the City Manager, the City's Boards and Commissions, the City Department Heads, and other key City Staff regarding the legal implications of contemplated policy and administrative decisions. The City Attorney's Office also prepares and reviews various ordinances, contracts, and other legal documents, and conducts a variety of legal trainings and other educational programs designed to avoid lawsuits.

The City Prosecutor's Office is a division of the City Attorney's Office. This division is located in the Municipal Court facility and is responsible for the prosecution of all City Code violations in Municipal Court. Although there is no formal division between the two operations, references to the "City Attorney's Office" have come to mean the civil portion of the City Attorney's Office, while references to the "City Prosecutors" have become known to be references to the City Prosecutor's Office.
