Resolutions and City Ordinances

City Ordinances

Ordinances are written laws adopted by the municipal governing authority that serve as permanent, enforceable laws (unless amended or repealed through the adoption of a new ordinance). Your city’slocal charter will provide additional details on how your ordinances are specifically adopted. Keep in mind that state and federal laws supersede any conflicting city ordinances.

Common examples of ordinances include:

  • Rezoning of property
  • Annexation of property
  • Text amendments to local zoning
  • Alcohol regulations
  • Public safety regulations
  • Land development regulations

Ordinances may be given various readings similar to how federal and statelegislatures pass laws. Please check your city charter to determine how an ordinance must be adopted in your city, specifically paying attention to the number of readings required and the types of meetings at which such readings must take place. Also note that some ordinances, such as "home rule" amendments to the city charter and zoning changes have state law governing the ordinance approval procedure.
