IDAHO FALLS — The Idaho Municipal Attorneys Association recognized City of Idaho Falls City Attorney Randy Fife for his ongoing contributions to the practice of municipal law and the state.
Fife received the prestigious William Herrington Career of Service Award on Friday at the Association's summer conference in Boise. The award is given to attorneys who have made an outstanding contribution to the municipal legal practice and who embody what municipal attorneys should aspire to.
Fife was appointed as the City of Idaho Falls' lead legal counsel in 2013. Prior to coming to Idaho Falls, Fife had extensive experience in municipal law, having served as an attorney for the cities of Moscow, Idaho, and Dallas, Texas.
As City Attorney for Idaho Falls, Fife provides legal-related advice, support, and information to Mayor Rebecca Casper, the members of City Council, and all city Directors. In addition to serving as the city’s chief legal representative, it is his job to ensure that city officials comply with legal and ethical requirements, draft legal documents and opinions, analyze cases and civil litigation, conduct investigations into complaints made by or against the city, and analyze any court rulings that may affect the city.
"Mr. Fife’s dedication to the city, along with his deep experience and specialized background in diverse subjects in fields such as aviation law, and the huge legal practice area surrounding the electric power industry, including generation, transmission, and power contacts make him a tremendous asset to our team,” said Idaho Falls Mayor Rebecca Casper. “Mr. Fife provides our city with a wealth of knowledge in key governance areas, which in turn makes our community better for everyone who lives, works and travels through Idaho Falls.”
