Ordinances

An Ordinance is a local law of general or permanent nature.  As a local law, an Ordinance stands until it is amended or repealed by another Ordinance enacted by a later Borough Council.  Penalties, which can be enforced in court, may be attached for failure to obey Ordinances.

All Ordinances must be passed by Borough Council by majority vote.  If approved, an Ordinance is then presented to the Mayor for his/her approval or veto.  The Mayor may then sign the Ordinance, let it become effective without signing it after 10 days, or veto it and return it to Borough Council with his/her objections.  Borough Council then has 10 days to override the veto and approve the Ordinance by a 2/3 vote.
