3.04.030 Enforcement of Legislative Subpoena.

(Added by Ordinance No. 188362, effective May 10, 2017.)

A.  If a person subpoenaed as provided in Section 3.04.010 fails to appear to testify or fails to produce any records as required, or whenever any person so summoned refuses to answer any question pertinent to the subject under inquiry, the City Attorney may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for an order to the person to attend and testify, or otherwise to comply with the subpoena.

B.  The City Attorney’s application to the court may seek an order requiring the person against whom the subpoena is directed to comply with the subpoena within three days after service of the order, or within such further time as the court may grant, or to justify the failure within that time.
