Municipal Laws

The common council creates, amends, and repeals laws by passing ordinances at public meetings.

MUNICIPAL CODE – Each ordinance is organized by topic to form the municipal code.  The municipal code only contains ordinances currently in effect.

LEGISLATION – Each time the common council wants to change the municipal code, it must enact an ordinance to so do.  Click here to view recently passed ordinances.  Older ordinances are available in the city clerk’s office.

CHARTER ORDINANCES – The common council may pass an ordinance that amends or repeals the city’s original charter, or any part of the charter.  Click to view all charter ordinances passed by the common council since the city’s original charter.
