Municipal Entity Representation: Why They Need Lawyers Too

municipal entity representation

If you have been elected to a position on a governing body, congratulations and condolences. This may be your first elected position and you may find that the adage, be careful what you wish for, is all too true. Governing a municipality is a challenging undertaking; budgets, personnel issues, zoning, planning, and land use issues are all areas where good intentions too often lead to big headaches.

Municipal council or committee members are called upon to make decisions on topics that may be far outside their normal education or experience. They rely on the advice of professionals; attorneys, engineers, accountants, auditors to help them do the right thing.

Yet even with the best advice and best intentions seldom will all interested parties be satisfied with a decision. Lawsuits abound against council or committee members in their official and individual capacities. When this happens outside counsel often are called upon to defend the individuals and their actions. The attorneys at Craig, Annin & Baxter are the experienced litigation experts that municipalities and their insurers turn to for help. An employee who is disciplined, terminated, or had someone else was promoted in their place may sue. A property owner denied a variance or permit, may raise a challenge or appeal their tax assessment. In any or all of these circumstances, contact Woodbury’s Craig, Annin & Baxter for help.
