TEXAS CITY — City commissioners are set to update the city’s code of ordinances for the first time in almost 16 years.
Over the past nearly two decades, the city has added new ordinances and amended older ones but hasn’t stopped to review and recodify the code of ordinances since 1998.
The review of the ordinances, performed by American Legal, began almost two years ago, said Nick Finan, Texas City’s city secretary.
Any major changes, such as updating the ordinance related to synthetic marijuana, were sent to the city commissioners for approval, he said.
If approved by commissioners the re-codification of the ordinances would include things like updating wording to make codes easier to read and organize the sections so they make more sense, he said.
Most of the edits are minor and only about a handful of changes were more substantive, Finan said.
