File a Claim

If you wish to file a claim, it must list the circumstances of the claim, be signed, and be served within 120 days of the event that brought about the claim.  It must be served on the city clerk in the same way a court summons is served.  

The city attorney's office has a Claim Form (PDF) that you may choose to utilize.  

You may file a claim that just lists the circumstances of the incident, but the city attorney's office cannot process your claim until you submit the address of the claimant and an itemized statement of the relief sought.
