No. The City Attorney is appointed by the City Council as the chief legal advisor for the City government, and the City Attorney provides legal advice directly to the City Council and City staff. City government services are provided to the public by City staff (implementing policy direction from the City Council, and considering legal advice form the City Attorney). Given this organizational structure, the City Attorney's Office is ethically precluded from providing legal advice directly to members of the public, under the California State Bar Rules of Professional Conduct.
