Memoranda of Law Details

A Memorandum of Law issued by the City Attorney’s Office is a response to a request or question typically posed by the Mayor, City Council (jointly or separately), any full commission, board, committee, or agency (whether or not Charter based), through that entity's executive director or City liaison, City Manager, Assistant City Manager, Deputy City Manager, or Department Director, which narrowly applies the interpretation of the current law to a particular problem or situation.

A miscellaneous memorandum issued by the City Attorney’s Office is a shorter response to a request or question typically posed by any City, or City-related, official or employee, which narrowly applies appropriate references, generally without interpretation of the law, but is a matter of importance to the Office or the City.

These documents do not contain any referenced attachments or enclosures.
