The City of Newton Council acts upon resolutions and ordinances when necessary. Ordinances are then codified yearly. The difference between the two are that an ordinance is a law made by the municipality and a resolution is passed to provide written documentation of a municipality's opinion, will or intent and is often limited in duration.
