    Legal Services

    TAC's Legal Services Department can help county officials with the challenges that they face due to a complex web of laws and regulations.

    County government operates within a complex web of laws and regulations, and one of the greatest challenges county officials face is ensuring that operations are not only efficient and effective, but also within the law. That’s where the TAC's Legal Services Department can help.

    Legal Resources

    TAC's Legal Services Department provides many legal resources online, including a wide variety of legal publications, sample declarations of local disaster, sample orders related to burn bans and fireworks, our interactive population bracket map, and on-demand web trainings.

    Population Bracket Map
