The City Attorney provides legal advice and services to the City Council and City staff. A review of legal issues ensures that recommendation, policies and administrative procedures are undertaken after consideration of sound
professional advice. At Council direction, the City Attorney may also provide for appropriate representation for the
City in all legal proceedings.
General legal services are provided through a contract with the law firm of Lozano Smith. There is one designated
City Attorney; however, other lawyers at the firm are available for additional expertise and assistance as needed.
