Does the City Attorney write City laws?
The City Attorney assists the Mayor, Board of Aldermen, and City staff in proposing new or changes to the City Code of Ordinances (the Osage Beach Municipal Code), which is ultimately voted on by the Board of Aldermen. In most cases, individual departments or the elected officials draft proposals and the City Attorney provides necessary legal assistance and review.
