Can a mayor (or his designate) agree to settle a lawsuit with a monetary payment or would it require the approval of the City Council to disburse the funds?

@gollum,
Depends on how it is addressed in the city charter and what powers it gives to whom and for what purpose.

@gollum,
Most municipalities have legal counsel who would advise the city council.

I doubt if a mayor, by himself, can settle anything without bringing it to the council.

But I suppose it would depend on the amount and terms of the settlement.

@gollum,
Well, i don't think that mayor, by himself, can settle anything. For doing this he should bring it to the council.
