A1: Requirements for posting and publishing city documents vary by type and city size. Below you’ll find a quick reference list for what cities are required to post and/or publish, including minutes, meeting notices, job postings, and more.
A2:First, if you don’t know who represents you, use this district map tool to find your representatives and senators and their contact information.
Once you know who represents you, reach out and introduce yourself. You can simply send an email noting that you are a constituent who works for a city in their district. Most legislators are interested in meeting constituents, particularly city officials who work firsthand on issues impacting their districts. You can also note the reason you are contacting them — a bonding project, a local sales tax proposal, general needs of the community such as housing, infrastructure, wastewater, etc.
Most legislators are happy to correspond via email, phone, or meeting in person or virtually. Once you meet with your legislator they will likely want to know more about the issue and explore solutions. Be sure to provide them as much information as you can and keep them updated.
The League is also happy to help arrange meetings with your legislators and keep you informed on issues impacting cities. If you are unable to reach your legislators, email email@example.com, note the issue(s) you wish to discuss, and a member of the Intergovernmental Relations team will gladly assist.
To keep city officials informed, the League also provides frequent and timely updates on issues impacting cities generally. The Cities Bulletin and Legislative News webpage is where the League publishes updates on all city related legislative issues including analysis of legislation and updates on advocacy efforts and city priorities. During the legislative session which typically runs from January to May, the League will publish updates every Monday. At the end of each session, the League also publishes our Law Summaries and pieces that specifically analyze new laws in our Focus on New Laws.
The League also maintains a comprehensive list of policy positions that direct the League’s advocacy efforts and guide the League’s position on various issues impacting cites. The League welcomes any city officials interested in working on legislative issues to join us for policy committees to explore setting the League’s policy platform and work on issues impacting their own city and cities generally.
