Ordinances & Resolutions

Both a resolution and an ordinance represent actions by the city council which are binding until rescinded or amended. An ordinance will generally prescribe permanent rules of conduct or government, whereas a resolution will generally deal with matters of a special or temporary character. A resolution is typically an act that is less solemn or formal than an ordinance and generally is simply an expression of the opinion or mind of the official body.
