Process of Codification

Once an ordinance is proposed, discussed, and approved by City Council through two public readings at separate City Council meetings, it is officially passed and signed by the mayor and city clerk. The ordinance is then published and codified. The codification process extracts necessary information and compiles and organizes it in a way that makes it legally presentable in document form. The original ordinance is still valid, but the ''chapter and verse'' codified ordinance is what is most commonly referenced.
