Legal Inquiries

The Member Legal Services Department responds to general questions about municipal law by providing and/or discussing existing written opinions, regulations, statutes, cases or articles.

Inquiries are accepted from elected or appointed city officials in KLC member cities, media and other governmental agencies. The legal staff avoids involvement in fact-specific disputes between city officials and will defer the inquirer to his or her city attorney unless all individuals involved in the dispute have made a request to the department. 

Written inquiries received via email, fax or letters will be responded to by either telephoning the individual making the inquiry or responding with existing opinions, regulations, statutes, cases or articles that relate to the question presented. The legal staff does not generally give a written opinion by email, fax, or letter.

To submit a question by telephone, contact the legal staff at 1-800-876-4552. 

To submit a request by email, contact Laura Milam Ross or Andrea Shindlebower.  KLC’s fax number is 859-977-3703.
