Law Department/Legislative Process

Marcos Nichols ASKED

The City of Hamilton is changing it's process. We are going to have Directors and Chiefs become responsible for drafting their ordinances and resolutions for their respective departments. Once they draft everything, it will be sent to the City Manager's office where a staff member will review (either flag and send back to director for additional information or approve complete) the documents. Once everything is taken care of, we will send it to the law director (outside law firm). Who writes and reviews the legislation for your community? I'd also like to get some input, whether there are other communities that currently do this, or have considered it. Pros/Cons?
