League Recognizes Tempe Assistant City Attorney for Service to Cities and Towns
The League and Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell recognized Jenae Naumann, Tempe’s assistant city attorney, for assisting Arizona cities and towns on legislation seeking to limit local decision-making and oversight for deployment of small cell wireless equipment (HB2365) and licensing of cable TV providers (SB1140). Naumann also utilized her specialized knowledge of telecommunications law to address the impact of federal regulations on Arizona municipalities and further protect local decision-making at a national level.
Naumann has extensive experience working with private-sector cable and telecommunications companies negotiating agreements to allow the deployment of facilities and equipment within municipal rights-of-way. She is active in state and national groups informing local governments of emerging policy issues and coordinating efforts to comply with new state and federal laws. Her efforts, both at the state and national level, have been essential to maintaining the ability for Arizona cities and towns to protect and manage public property and the aesthetic character of their communities.
Naumann’s service was recognized during the Tempe City Council meeting on November 15, 2018.
