Ordinances


KRS 83A.010(11) defines an "ordinance" as "an official action of a city legislative body, which is a regulation of a general and permanent nature and enforceable as a local law or is an appropriation of money." This definition is a codification of the common law, which holds that valid ordinances have the character and effect of statutes within a city's boundaries and are enforceable by the city under the authority of the state.
