City approves codification/changes to city codes

Posted

The Board of Aldermen unanimously adopting and enacting a new code of ordinances for the city. The vote was taken during a rescheduled city meeting held via Zoom Tuesday, Nov. 17.

The city contracted with the company General Code in May 2019 to codify the city codes for $9,900.

During this process, General Code conducted a review of the current codes in the city. They looked for codes that might not be in alignment with state statutes, codes that may be in conflict with codes in other chapters of the book, and obsolete codes.

Proposed changes were sent to the aldermen who held many meetings or workshops to discuss the changes before approving.

The new city codes, including changes, have been accepted by the vote at the Nov. 17 meeting and are now in place. The new codes have not been posted to the city’s website and it is not clear when they will be available there.

The board also approved upgrading the QuickBooks software used by the city clerk. The old plan cost the city $1,166 each year. The new plan provides more training, expanded features and is more user friendly at a cost of $1,844 per year.
