Any incorporated city or town may annex territory in an adjacent county pursuant to the provisions of Title 9, Article 7 of the Arizona Revised Statutes. However, a successful annexation requires that the municipality be in compliance with petition, public notice, and public hearing requirements, and be prepared to answer any questions of validity posed by other cities or counties. Our attorneys have a thorough understanding of the applicable laws and regulations and have assisted clients with all aspects of the annexation process.
Public Records and Open Meeting Law
State law requires local governments, committees, and subcommittees to follow certain protocols with respect to public records and during meetings. State law regulates which documents and information are considered public record, and require that meetings be open to the public, and that minutes be recorded. Our attorneys are experienced with these laws and regularly counsel municipalities as to how to comply fully.
