Ordinances & Resolutions

The City Council has various options available for taking legislative action, including the passage, adoption, or approval of ordinances, resolutions, rules, regulations, motions, and policies.

  • A resolution generally states a position or policy of a city.  See the City's archived list of resolutions.
  • An ordinance is more formal and authoritative than a resolution.  An ordinance is a local law that usually regulates persons or property and usually relates to a matter of a general and permanent nature.  See the City's archived list of ordinances.
