About Bylaws:

 

The Bylaws are arranged according to the Records Classification System recommended by the Local Government Management Association.
 
The Records Classification System for Local Government is a Block Numeric filing system. The organizating principle is function, then arranged alphabetically. 
 
The complete Records Classification System represents a menu from which local government staff can select the appropriate primary and secondary headings to classify all information generated or received by their organization. 
 
The following contains the most frequently requested bylaws. If you would like to access bylaws that are not included below, please contact the Administration Department.
 
Disclaimer: We do not guarantee the accuracy of the information below. If there is a discrepancy between the following versions of bylaws and the ones from City Hall, the City Hall version will take precedent.
