Ordinances and Municipal Codes
An ordinance is: A law or an act of a city, municipality or local governmental agency. City Councils have authority to pass ordinances through Government Code (GC) Section 37100, as long as these ordinances do not conflict with the laws and Constitution of the State of California or of the United States. It is the most binding form of action a City Council can take.

Ordinances are codified into (become part of) the municipal code: After the City Council second reading and adoption. Municipal codes have been provided by Lexis-Nexis.
