Ordinances & Resolutions

Legislative Proposals

The Pierce County Council considers legislative proposals that fall into two categories:
  • Ordinances have the force of law; and
  • Resolutions confirm or reject executive appointments, make declarations of policy that do not have the force of law and request information from other county government agencies (see Pierce County Charter, Section 2.55).
Note: Approved ordinances are often codified in the Pierce County Code.
