Council acts through ordinances and resolutions. The distinction between the two is not always clear. An ordinance is generally required for more permanent and formal matters and usually requires publication.
Ordinances and resolutions shall be read by title only, on three days, unless a full reading is voted for by a majority, or reading is dispensed with by a vote of three-fourths of Council. Voting on passage shall be taken by yeas and nays and journalized. Passage requires at least a majority vote. Action not requiring an ordinance or resolution may be taken by a majority of members present (ORC 731.17).
