Ordinances & Changes to the City Code
City Ordinances (most of which amend the BMCC) may be adopted as frequently as every two weeks at each City Council meeting. We recommend that you view the City Council agendas for any proposed ordinances of interest to you.

An ordinance takes effect 30 days after it is approved on second reading by the City Council. An emergency ordinance is identified as such and takes effect immediately.
