Illinois Environmental Consulting Attorneys

Attorneys for Environmental Consulting and Representation for Municipalities

At Cisar & Mrofka, Ltd., we provide open consulting and representation on infrastructure projects related to water, sewer water, and waste water for Illinois municipalities and units of local government. Our legal team has nearly half a century of combined experience in this complex area of law, and we have in-depth knowledge of the statutes that create and govern the cities, villages, and municipalities themselves. We put this experience to work to provide skilled guidance and representation for our valued clients.

Our environmental consulting and representation includes (but not limited to):

  • Assisting General Counsel: We provide aid to general counsel for large infrastructure municipality organizations in conjunction with funding projects. This may include effectively coordinating ordinances relating to your project and/or drafting a new ordinance (if necessary) for residents to approve the project. We can work hand in hand with acting counsel to aid in rare and unique controversies including appellate practice, statute interpretation, funding, and all related procedural hurdles.
  • Waterworks Infrastructure Funding for Communities and Governments: We work closely with communities and governments on major infrastructure projects to ensure statutory compliance and smooth implementation at a low cost to the client. Specifically, we assist sanitary districts, cities, villages, and municipalities in obtaining funding for waterworks infrastructure projects. This includes compliance with the EPA, compliance with various federal and state administrative codes and state statutes as well as access to EPA grants and state funding programs.

Environmental Consulting and Representation for State and Local Governments

We provide in-depth guidance on all matters related to waterworks (and other) infrastructure projects for state and local government entities in Illinois. Such projects involve compliance with state and federal enabling statutes, various administrative codes, state and local public notice requirements, various provisions of the Illinois Sanitary District Acts, Chicago Municipal Code, county zoning ordinances, the state revolving loan program, the Illinois Environmental Protection Act, and many others. We apply our extensive knowledge of these statutes and ordinances to provide comprehensive guidance throughout the entire process.

For example, we can issue legal opinions requested by state and local agencies on these projects, advise on the process of applying for low-interest government loans, and also handle bond issuances, alternative revenue bonds (backdoor referendums), and judicial and administrative proceedings involving government regulatory agencies and disputes between units of government.

Waterworks infrastructure projects are highly complex and involve numerous governing laws and regulations. These laws are sometimes contradictory, and their application is not always clear. Municipalities undertaking these projects need skilled attorneys that understand the applicable ordinances and statutes and can develop the best legal path to smooth and efficient project completion.
