People often overlook the impact municipalities have on our day to day lives. They control the zoning laws which ensure new construction doesn’t conflicting with existing residents or businesses, and preserve the general style or character of a community. They make sure our roads are safe for pedestrians and motorists alike. They maintain the parks and various other publicly accessible areas of recreation. Municipal governments can be the oil that keeps a machine running smoothly.
Unfortunately we don’t live in a perfect world, and there are times when a municipality doesn’t perform the duties it should. Legal action is often necessary to compel municipalities to act properly. Attorneys unfamiliar with municipal law will quickly discover that it’s a fast-paced world. The deadlines for commencing an action differ significantly from other areas of law and the inexperienced can easily miss an important date.
