About City Councils

What is an ordinance?

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.

What are the requirements for being a candidate for City Council?

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.

What is the difference between a City Council and a Town 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.
