Pending Legislation

Spotlights

The term “Ordinance” refers to a type of legislative action by the Village Council that is of a general nature and has permanent effect. Generally, an Ordinance creates a right, law or regulation; grants a franchise; levies a tax; and may amend existing Codified Ordinances. Ordinances are read at three meetings before being voted upon, unless passed as emergency legislation.

“Resolutions” are similar to Ordinances, but generally are used to authorize the signing of contracts and the approval of expenditures—items that require Council approval but have less permanent effect. Resolutions are also read at three meetings before being voted upon, unless passed as an emergency.

Many times, passing legislation as an emergency has more to do with its effective date, than that the item is a true emergency.  Emergency legislation is effective upon signature by the Mayor or upon the expiration of the 10-day veto period, if the Mayor fails to sign the legislation. Non-emergency legislation does not take effect for 30 days after passage. This 30-day period is provided by the Charter to give electors time to file a petition to request that an ordinance or resolution be repealed and/or submitted to a vote of the electors (where the issue is subject to referendum).
