Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
If you cannot get your elected officials to act, you can consider filing a civil suit against the county for failure to follow state laws.
If you intend to take this course of action, please retain a local attorney to represent you - filing a suit against a government body is more complex than filing suit against a private individual or entity, you must comply with different notice requirements, the government enjoys immunity from many tort actions, and (most important to your case) elected officials have a great deal of discretion in the way that they implement statutory requirements.
None of this is meant to imply you cannot succeed in your suit, only to encourage you to retain counsel if you do file suit - you really will need the additional experience of a practiced civil litigator if you want to win your case.
You can find local attorneys using the State and local Bar Association directories, or private directories such as www.AVVO.com; www.FindLaw.com; or www.Martindale.com (I personally find www.AVVO.com to be the most user friendly).
