An ordinance is: A law or an act of a city, municipality or local government agency. City Councils have authority to pass ordinances through the Municipal Home Rule Act O.C.G.A. § 36-35-1, as long as these ordinances do not conflict with the laws and Constitution of the State of Georgia or of the United States. It is the most binding form of action a City Council can take. Violating an ordinance may be a misdemeanor unless an ordinance makes it an infraction. (O.C.G.A. § 36-35-6, 36-32-1, 36-32-5)
The City of Cleveland Code of Ordinances is the city's primary code. Secondary codes include any other codes adopted by reference, e.g. international building code, animal control, etc.) Adopting by reference means adopting a code that another agency such as the county or the state has previously written and adopted.
Ordinances are codified into (become part of) the municipal code after the City Council's second reading and adoption.
