He or she is also responsible under the City Charter for representing the City in all legal proceedings, drawing all ordinances and preparing all other legal documents for the City, attending all Council meetings, and performing all services related to the position as may be required by the City Charter, the ordinances of the City or the Council.  The City Attorney's Office is comprised of the City Attorney, two Deputy City Attorneys, six Assistant City Attorneys, and one Municipal Court Prosecutor.
