Governing Communities

Municipal Law

Municipal Law is the law specific to a particular city or county (known legally as a “municipality”) and the government bodies within those cities or counties. This can cover a wide range of issues including; police power, zoning, education policies, and property taxes.

Local city or town councils are primarily responsible for creating municipal law. Since council members are elected from the town’s residents, local residents have great control over municipal law, which can vary greatly between municipalities, including:

  • General Counsel
  • Condemnation Proceedings
  • Ordinance Review & Enforcement
