2015 Ordinances


The Kent City Charter, Section 35 defines acts of Council requiring passage of an ordinance. 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 an ordinance on the same night.

Council may enact the "emergency" clause which allows an ordinance to become effective as of the date of passage. If they choose not to enact the emergency clause, ordinances 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 ordinances passed in 2015. Click on the ordinance number to read the entire ordinance. If you wish to review the minutes where a specific ordinance is passed, click on the date.

Some ordinances contain maps, deeds, or other items, known as exhibits, that are not available electronically. Those items are on file with the original signed ordinance in the Kent City Council office, located at 217 E. Summit Street, Kent. OH.
