The City of Marathon City Council enacts ordinances, which are part of the Municipal Code, and resolutions, which are not part of the code but are legally binding.
Both ordinances and resolutions are numbered consecutively, with the number preceded by the year enacted. So if you are looking for resolution ‘2016-124’, you would find it under resolutions for the year 2016. _
An Ordinance is an official legislative action which establishes “a regulation of a general and permanent nature and enforceable as a local law” (s. 166.041(1)(a), F.S.).
