Local government departments, commissions, councils, and boards have their own agency rules. These agency rules vary between each entity. Each department, commission, council, and board has its own procedure in operation, whether that’s adopting a federal standard, creating its own, or a hybrid of adopting a standard and modifying it for local use. In approaching or responding to an entity under these rules, there are certain procedures to follow, before a district court will potentially hear the matter.
We have extensive experience in navigating this process and articulating the differences between the Idaho Administrative Code and Idaho Code, which includes the approach in informal disciplinary investigations and defending formal adverse administrative prosecutions.
