City Council Adopted Administrative Rules

Subject to the limitations in the City Charter, City Council may adopt administrative rules or regulations governing administrative procedures and the application of a law to aid in the administration and enforcement of ordinances.

When proposed rules have been prepared under this article, a public hearing shall be held upon not less than ten days' published notice, which notice shall state the general topic of regulation, the location and time of hearing and that copies of the proposed rules are available at the office of the City Clerk. The adopting authority, or his designee, shall preside at the hearing and shall receive such evidence and argument as may be presented.

Subsequent to such hearing the proposed rules may be revised as deemed appropriate and shall then be transmitted to City Council for approval by resolution. Such rules shall become effective upon approval by the City Council. (Code 1960, § 2-52; Code 1981, § 2-123)

The City Clerk shall maintain for public inspection during regular business hours copies of all rules in effect under this article and shall furnish copies of rules to the public at a price not to exceed copying expense.

Any rule promulgated under this article shall remain in effect until revocation by the adopting authority, upon notice to the City Clerk. (Code 1960, § 2-54; Code 1981, § 2-125)
