Having a dispute with your neighbor?

While we do promote people being good neighbors, the City won't necessarily be able to resolve your dispute. 

The Neighbor Law website provides valuable information on resolving common disputes regarding fences, trees, property lines, and so forth.  We have a copy of their book available at our office for reference. 

Free or low cost mediation services and legal services may be available. Visit the Solano County library's Legal Assistance and Mediation Resources website.
