Civil Matters

The City Attorney's office provides legal advice and assistance to the Oak Harbor City Council, City Boards and Commissions and City Departments. It is also responsible for drafting and/or reviewing agenda bills, ordinances, resolutions, contracts and other legal documents. The City Attorney's office defends lawsuits brought against the City and actively litigates cases filed on behalf of the City.

The City Attorney's office advises and represents the interests of the City government. It does not represent individual citizens. The City Attorney's office is strictly prohibited from providing legal advice to others. Individuals must retain private counsel for legal advice on such issues.
