The Arvada City Council is responsible for establishing policies to guide the various functions of the City Council and, when necessary, establishing performance procedures for those policies.  With the adoption of each policy, the Council sets out its purpose, definition, procedures, and other information deemed necessary to provide a history of the policy statement as well as a cross reference with an adopted Ordinance, Resolution or Motion. 

Specific procedures contained within a policy statement are intended to guide, rather than dictate, a specific course of action by the City Council.  Accordingly, any procedures established by a written policy may be modified by the Council, at their sole discretion, if it is determined that there are substantial and justified reasons for doing so. Any written policy may be temporarily suspended by majority vote of all Councilmembers present, and any written policy may be amended, re-enacted or repealed by majority vote of all Councilmembers present.
