How can I use other types of evidence?
If you have charts, photographs, maps, diagrams, or other exhibits, they must be identified for inclusion in the record. It is helpful if you have enough copies to provide a copy to the city attorney and the court. The court must follow the rules of evidence and most written statements are not admissible unless they meet one of the hearsay exceptions. If you need testimony from individuals, it is best to have those individuals in court to testify.
