What is an Ombudsman

An Ombudsman is an independent and objective individual who reviews citizen complaints and helps resolve them as efficiently as possible by pursuing what is right. After an investigative process, the Ombudsman determines if the complaint is legitimate and formulates recommendations addressed to the City.
