The request was made in a letter to County Attorney Mike O’Connell Thursday. King is asking for  an opinion on the legality of spending taxpayer dollars on food and drink used at public meetings, using city-funded debit cards for constituents to 'promote goodwill' and buying banquet tickets used by council members if the banquet is a public meeting."
