2013 Legislation

 

The Kent City Charter, Section 35 defines acts of Council requiring passage of legislation. Click here to read Section 35 of the Charter.

All ordinances and resolutions must be read, by title only, at three separate meetings. Council may, by a three-fourth majority vote (or seven members), suspend the three readings. This would enable them to consider and pass legislation on the same night.

Council may enact the "emergency" clause which allows legislation to become effective as of the date of passage. If they choose not to enact the emergency clause, legislation can take effect at a later date. Generally, unless otherwise specified, the least time allowed by law is thirty days.

Below is a list of all legislation passed in 2013. Click on the legislation number to read the entire piece of legislation. If you wish to review the minutes where a specific legislation is passed, click on the date.

Some legislation contain maps, deeds, or other items, known as exhibits, that are not available electronically. Those items are on file with the original signed legislation in the Kent City Council office, located at 320 S. Depeyster Street, Kent. OH.
