Municipal Law

Ordinance Drafting and Code Enforcement

The implementation of ordinances and codes can sometimes present issues of interpretation and application for departments within a governmental entity. A poorly drafted ordinance can result in costly litigation. Attorneys at Cummings, McClorey, Davis & Acho, P.L.C. (CMDA) take an integrated approach by combining the resources of the enforcement officers and other municipal personnel. A coordinated effort among these groups helps to ensure the policies underlying the adoption of the State Codes, whether building, plumbing, mechanical or electrical, are implemented and enforced.
