An ordinance is a law of the county, local in nature, adopted by the Board of County Commissioners. They usually cover local matters not already covered by federal or state laws. Ordinances are typically regulatory in nature covering county matters such as: zoning, building codes, solid waste management, county utility rates, road signage and development reviews.
