Ordinances - An ordinance is an official legislative action of a governing body. This action is a regulation of a general and permanent nature and it is enforceable as a local law. Ordinances that are officially approved and adopted become the ‘Code of Ordinances’.
Resolutions - A resolution is an expression of a governing body concerning matters of administration, an expression of a temporary character, or a provision for the disposition of a particular item of the administrative business of the governing body. Resolutions are less formal than ordinances.
