Ordinances, Resolutions and Charter Amendments (ORCAs) 

Webmaster Note:  The file offered below contains ORCAs from the present to 1983 and beyond.  The file contains the Date, "Assigned" (normally either an "O" or "R" followed by a two-digit year and then a two-digit number such as O-16-02), and Subject.  As introduced during Town Council meetings, the last part of the "Assigned" value contained a single digit such as O-16-2.  Wherever possible, single digit numbers were changed to two digits to facilitate sorting.

ORCAs from October 20, 2016 through December 21, 2017 are shown first, followed by older ORCAs in descending chronological order.


The file is full-text searchable and, other than those from late October 2016 through December 2017 mentioned above, is sorted from most recent to oldest.  ORCAs from 1983 have variable "Assigned" values or none at all, while ORCAs prior to 1983 are listed with a date of "<1983" because there was no uniformity in "Assigned" values or date.


An Ordinance is a law passed by a municipal government.  A Resolution is an official expression of the opinion or will of a legislative body. A resolution is not a law.
