Ordinances are the laws of the City of Marina, which are codified into the Municipal Code.
The ordinance form is required in cases where an existing ordinance is to be amended or repealed; when the law will impose a penalty by fine, imprisonment or forfeiture; and when the charter or statutory authority expressly requires one.
Approval of an ordinance requires a first and second reading, with at least five days between same, except in the case of urgency ordinances. With few exceptions, ordinances take effect 30 days after final passage (G.C. 36937).
