  • Emergency Management Ordinance – Adopted in 1995, this ordinance has since been largely duplicated by state law and is warned for repeal.
  • Motor Vehicle and Traffic Ordinance – Adopted in 1958, this ordinance, amended at least 18 times, is warned to repeal and to adopt a new ordinance in form that provides the Council flexibility to amend street sign locations, speed limits, etc. by resolution.
  • Parking Ordinance – Along with the repeal of the 1958 Motor Vehicle and Traffic Ordinance, this proposed ordinance creates a standalone parking ordinance that will provide for general parking prohibitions in the City; a uniform schedule of fines; and, administrative appeal process.
  • Conduct in Parks Ordinance – Proposed amendment to require that dogs in Jaycee Park be required to be under owner control by a leash no longer than six feet at all times within the park.
