The term “Ordinance” refers to the 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 considered emergency legislation.
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is provided by the Charter to give electors time to file a petition to request that an ordinance or resolution be repealed and/or submitted to a vote of the electors (where the issue is subject to referendum).
