Who to Contact With Questions
Citizens who have questions about city ordinances should call the city department involved. It is the departments, not the city attorney, who administer the application of ordinances. If the department has questions about how an ordinance applies in a particular situation, the department will contact the city attorney for legal advice.
The city Attorney does not represent the individual citizens of the city in private matters such as criminal defense, landlord / tenant issues, private property issues, recovery of loan money, divorce issues, recovery of wages from an employer, child custody issues, etc.
For matters such as these, the citizen would need to contact and consult with a private attorney.
