Cities and their elected officials are governed by thousands of laws. Not following them can lead to severe consequences, including jail time in some cases. That’s why cities have attorneys. A part-time, volunteer official can’t be expected to know it all, but you can know the basics.
Join us for Municipal Law 101. This workshop will take you on a whirlwind tour of the laws that affect cities. It will emphasize what you need to know to be able to “issue spot.”
You will hear from experts from throughout the State of Texas on topics concerning types of government, public information act, liability, election law, dealing with the media, and more.
You will leave this workshop armed with knowledge to better understand why your attorney advises in certain ways, and how you can better spot the issues that need legal review.
