Notice of Proposed Ordinances or Amendment to Ordinances
There are three readings that are required for an ordinance approval unless the Council determines that the ordinance can be accepted in one reading. Public hearing notices are published in the Pioneer Press the Sunday before the City Council meeting.
Please note that failure to provide a notice does not invalidate the adoption or amended ordinance.
The City will also notify by:
- Providing email notification of the proposed ordinances. If you’re interested, you may sign up for ordinance notifications.
- Offering a hard copy, available upon request, of the ordinance at IGH City Hall. Visit the front counter to request,

Check Back Often for Updates
Any revisions to proposed ordinances appear in City Council agenda packets for the second and third readings of proposed ordinances. A "reading" refers to when a proposed ordinance is reviewed during a City Council meeting. During the review process, the public has the opportunity to provide feedback and comments on proposed ordinances.
