Legal Committee

The Legal Committee was created by City resolution in 2005.  Members serve a maximum of three two-year terms on a staggered basis.  Their purpose is to review and monitor legal claims filed against the City.  With the City Attorney, the Committee is responsible for reviewing the Litigation Management Policy, recent legal decisions and opinions, related ordinances and contracts, plus relevant materials in order to promote the efficient and effective management of litigation and threats of litigation against The City of Lake Forest.

The Committee meets regularly on a quarterly basis in January, April, July and October.
