What is an Ordinance?
Ordinances are the laws of the Municipality (city). City Councils may pass Ordinances which become the City's Municipal Code. These Ordinances or laws may be passed by the City Council as long as they are not in conflict with federal or state laws.

An Ordinance is the most binding form of action taken by the City Council, and violations may be either a misdemeanor or an infraction depending upon the way the Ordinance is written.
