An ordinance is a legislative action taken by the City Council that enacts or changes a local law, policy, or procedure. The complete body of city ordinances is known as the Code of Ordinances.
Each city has its own eligibility requirements. Generally, an individual must be an adult, eligible to vote, and a resident of the city. Some cities require residency of a minimum period of time. Some prohibit individuals convicted of a felony or misappropriation of public funds from running for City Council.
A City Council and a Town Council are both legislative bodies for local government. Some states make no distinction between a city and town, and confer the same powers and duties to their legislative bodies. Other states make a distinction between different classes of local government. In those states, a City Council may have more extensive powers and duties than a Town Council.
