Our Resolutions & Ordinances


Also In This Section...

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.

Live the Dream!

Catch the Spirit...
