Paper Reduction Resolution

Paper usage has a significant impact on our environment, and this resolution encourages paper reduction where acceptable within City Hall. Internally, Council and administration will work to determine the total paper usage patterns and reduce paper usage wherever applicable. This can be achieved by using efficient tools like platforms, programs, or apps, circulating materials in advance, using electronic displays, utilizing remote meeting options, and encouraging the use of laptops or devices to take notes.

Emergency Ordinances

An ordinance is a law created by a local government, covering various topics such as zoning and rental building requirements. Once approved, it goes into effect after the Mayor signs it. Emergency ordinances go into effect immediately after they are passed by the council, without veto or citizen referendum. This ordinance establishes a detailed definition of "emergency" for future legislation and requires certain findings before adopting an emergency ordinance, ensuring appropriate use.
