City Council Resolutions and Ordinances

What are Resolutions and Ordinances?

An ordinance is a law adopted by the City Council. Ordinances usually amend, repeal or supplement the Municipal Code; provide zoning specifications; or appropriate money for specific purposes. Most ordinances require two hearings: an introductory hearing, generally followed two weeks later by a second public hearing. Most ordinances go into effect 30 days after the date of final passage.

A resolution is a formal expression of opinion or intention of the City Council. Resolutions go into effect on the date of final passage.
