Unlike cities, there is no statute establishing the position of the town attorney, nor requiring the appointment of a chief legal officer for the town. However, virtually every town has an attorney who represents the town and generally manages the town's legal affairs, under the direction of the town council either as an employee or as independent contractor. The town attorney is the town's primary source of legal advice and usually drafts ordinances and other legal documents. He or she represents the town in legal proceedings and serves at the pleasure of the town council. Compensation is determined by the council, just as it is for the marshal and all other town employees and officials. There is no statute governing the responsibilities of the town attorney, who represents the town in much the same manner as an attorney does any other client. The Owensville Town Attorney is Jason Spindler.
