Is the City of Redlands a General Law City or a Charter City?

By Michael Reiter, Attorney at Law

I get some of my post ideas through queries that are listed in my site’s statistics section.  The title of this post, Is the City of Redlands a General Law City or a Charter City,  is well-within my expertise to answer because I was the Assistant City Attorney of the City of Redlands from 2006 to mid-2010.  The answer is the City of Redlands is a general law city.  Redlands has never been a charter city, and I don’t think the issue has ever been put to the voters.

As Assistant City Attorney of the City of Redlands, I would sometimes search documents in the City Clerk’s Office  for cases or matters.  The City of Redlands itself had a slightly different form of government until the 1940s, with a Board of Trustees instead of a City Council, but I think that had to do with how cities were organized under California law at the time.
