Below is an explanation of the difference between resolutions, ordinance and codes:

  • Resolutions - Actions or policy matters taken by the Council that are meant to be temporary and can be deleted or changed.  A resolution executes a law already in place.
  • Ordinances - Ordinance are legally binding laws or regulations, or legislation intended to have a permanent and general effect. Ordinances can be repealed but it is a complicated and lengthy process.
  • Codes - Details based on ordinance and resolutions and are all based on the basic codes and requirements of the Ohio Revised Code (ORC).
