Description of Documents:
- Agenda is a list of items discussed at legislative meetings.
- Minutes contain the same information as the agenda, but include a brief description of the action that was taken at the meeting. They include adopted resolutions and ordinances and assigned document numbers. Minutes are the official record of the meeting.
- Ordinances* are laws of the municipality. Ordinances must be voted on at two separate Council meetings (first and second readings) and are not effective until 30 days after adoption. An ordinance is the most binding form of action taken by the City Council.
- Resolutions* constitute a written action or decision and generally take effect upon adoption.
- Staff reports include detailed information related to particular items on the agenda.
*Note: Ordinances and resolutions are subject to amendment, rescission or repeal, or readoption in whole or in part. Some ordinances and resolutions may not be currently in effect even though they appear in the Electronic Records Center. Additional research may be necessary to verify the completeness of the legislative history.
