The Village Board enacts legislation and takes official action in various ways, operating under Robert's Rules of Order:

  • Motions are used to approve, reject or table procedural matters, such as appointing members to boards, committees, and commissions, authorizing contracts, paying claims, giving direction to Village Staff and similar routine business.
  • Ordinances are local laws dealing with matters such as traffic, zoning, health and safety regulations, governmental organization, building and other construction codes, licenses, user fees, etc. Once an ordinance is adopted it can only be amended through enactment of another ordinance, and all ordinances must be published in the Village's official newspaper before they become effective. Most ordinances of a general nature are compiled in a volume entitled the Village of Kronenwetter Code of Ordinances or simply the "Village Code".
  • Resolutions are used to establish policy, express the opinion of the Board in a more formal manner, direct or authorize administrative action, offer official congratulations or appreciation on behalf of the Village, or to make various ceremonial acts.
