Municipal laws are often difficult to parse. They are specific to the area in which they are enacted, which makes them unique. Special districts, like electric cooperatives, operate much like governmental bodies and have their own set of complexities. Because municipal laws and special districts cover a broad range of industries such as roads, schools, water, sanitation, public transportation, electric co-ops, elections, and more, they can intersect with your business or personal goals, affecting construction, land use, employment, real estate, water use, and more.
JVAM’s attorneys understand the laws of the municipalities and special districts in the Roaring Fork and Arkansas river valleys and how they can affect residents, businesses, and co-op members. We advise and counsel clients on solutions to obstacles created by these laws and create ways to achieve your personal and business goals while complying with local ordinances. We also represent members of electric cooperatives, and can advise them on proper procedures, such as elections and approving bylaws.
Our attorneys can also help business clients identify local grants and programs that may apply to their projects and advise them on how to take advantage of these opportunities.
