Official action by the City Council may be in the form of an Ordinance or a Resolution. A Proclamation is an affirmative public statement made by the City Council.
An Ordinance is a municipal law which may be amended or repealed by adoption of another ordinance. Except in cases of emergency, an ordinance as passed by the City Council, takes effect five days after its publication in the city’s official newspaper. Most ordinances become part of the Lacey Municipal Code.
A Resolution may be used to express City Council policy, direct administrative or legal action, or to make a public statement from Council.
A Proclamation may be used to call attention to certain events or causes when such statements may positively impact the community and convey an affirmative message to Lacey residents.
The Council will consider requests to proclaim certain events or causes, when such proclamations positively impact the community and convey an affirmative message to Lacey community members. Proclamations that are political in nature, that are controversial, or that likely would not enjoy a high level of community interest and support, are discouraged.
