In Sonoma County, there are dozens of Special Districts that provide vital public services, such as fire protection, water supply, recreation and parks, health care and emergency medical transportation.
Publicly elected directors oversee these services and make sure taxpayer funds are properly allocated.
At Merrill, Arnone & Jones (MAJ Law) we are proud to have a vastly experienced team of Santa Rosa and Marin County Attorneys to assist many of these public entities as District Counsel. Government agencies are subject to many complex laws regarding open meetings (The Brown Act), public works, elections and campaigns, conflict of interests and ethics.
They must also contend with many of the same problems private organizations face each day, including labor and employment disputes, real estate transactions and contract review and drafting.
