Ordinances and Resolutions

An Ordinance is a proposed law that is approved by the City Council to become city law.  After approval, it is incorporated into the Federal Way Revised Code with all of the city laws. Ordinances generally amend or repeal existing laws.  
A Resolution is a formal expression approved by the City Council to state policy, opinion, or intent.  Resolutions are generally advisory in nature and state policy, they do not have the force of city law.
Ordinances and Resolutions are available online in the City's Document Library.
