The duties and responsibilities of the City Attorney are set forth in the City Charter. The Charter provides that the City Attorney serves as chief legal adviser to the Council, the Manager and all City departments, offices and agencies. The City Attorney represents the City in all legal proceedings and performs any other duties required by state law, by the Charter or by ordinance.
The mission of the City Attorney's Office is to provide high quality legal advice, counsel and representation for all civil matters involving the City, and effective enforcement of ordinances and prosecution of ordinance violations, in an efficient, timely, just and cost effective way for the benefit of the Menominee community.
The City Attorney's responsibilities fall within two categories. The first category includes providing advice, counsel and representation for all civil matters involving the City. The second category includes enforcing ordinances and prosecuting ordinance violations.
