An ordinance is any act or regulation of the council, except an expense budget or capital budget, required to be reduced to writing, published after introduction, and considered for final passage after a public hearing meeting after the meeting at which it was introduced.
Resolutions do not require formal advertisement or hearings, and are typically considered temporary as they lack the permanent enforceability of an Ordinance
