New ordinances are processed annually by Municode; to see YTD ordinances that are not yet coded, please click HERE.
In addition to Ordinances, the Town Council regularly adopts Resolutions. These are not incorporated in the Town's Code of Ordinances but do guide the Town's business operations, lay out office policies, create special committees, declare support, show appreciation, and much more. Please access Resolutions adopted by the Town Council below by year from 2003 to now. If you'd like to see Resolutions older than presented here or need help finding a specific Resolution/topic, please feel free to contact the Town Clerk for assistance.
