Pending Laws

An ordinance is a city law of a general or permanent nature. Cities pass a variety of ordinances to establish the duties of city officers, regulate animals, businesses and property, land use, to establish regulations and so on. A majority of all council members need to vote affirmatively at three (3) separate meetings to pass an ordinance. The City of West Burlington welcomes input from citizens concerning any legislation that is being considered. When necessary, Iowa Code Section 380.3 does allow the requirement to consider an ordinance three times to be waived in order to move an ordinance towards passage more quickly. An ordinance is effective upon publication or posting unless a subsequent effective date is provided within an ordinance. This section of the City Website will be updated with Ordinances that are being considered by City Council and Ordinances that have recently been adopted. If you have any questions concerning the contents of the Ordinances, please feel free to contact City Hall at (319)752-5451.
