Ordinances are municipal laws enacted by the Town Board of Trustees. An ordinance requires one reading before the Board of Trustees.  The ordinance is introduced and presented to the Board of Trustees by Town staff.   The Mayor asks for public comment on the issue (this is the public hearing portion).  An ordinance requires approval of a majority of those members present for adoption, and it becomes law 30 days after it is published.  An emergency ordinance requires the approval of two-thirds of the entire Board to be adopted, and it becomes law immediately upon adoption.  Ordinances are incorporated into the Nederland Municipal Code with each publication of the Code.
