Changes or additions to the laws and regulations of the Municipal Code can be proposed by any person or organization and considered by the entire Council with the support of two councilmembers. Such amendments would be brought before the entire council, sitting as the Committee of the Whole, by the supporting councilmembers for consideration. Amendments being considered for adoption are listed below, including current status and anticipated future schedule. Recently adopted amendments will reside on this page for one year's time.
