Webinar: General Powers of Municipalities

Description: Municipalities are delegated a portion of the sovereign powers of the state for the welfare and protection of their inhabitants and the general public within their jurisdictional areas. All powers, property, and offices of a municipal corporation constitute a public trust to be administered as such within the intent and purposes of the statutes which created them and within the limitations imposed by the state and federal Constitutions.

Webinar: Duties of the Mayor and Council

Description: One of the most misunderstood aspects of municipal government is the separation of powers between the mayor and the council. Like government on the state and federal levels, municipal government is divided into three separate but equal branches: executive, legislative and judicial. Each of these branches has distinct duties and powers and restrictions on how far it can intrude into the affairs of the other branches. This session provides a detailed overview of the duties of the mayor and council.

Webinar: The Open Meetings Act

Description: United States Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis once stated that, “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants.” In that spirit, Alabama law requires municipal officials to comply with the Alabama Open Meetings Act (OMA) when meeting so that members of the public can observe their elected and appointed officials as they conduct public business. This session provides a detailed overview of the OMA to help you comply with this complex law.
