The city is required by law to publish ordinances that are adopted by the City Council. State law allows the city to meet this requirement by publishing either the complete text or a summary of the ordinance. Summaries of ordinances, as well as completed texts of ordinances, are posted to the city’s website in an effort to enhance public access to these documents. Posting these documents to the website is not intended to supplant the posting of hard copies in accordance with State Law.
