Legislative- Ordinance Revisions
The Village of Blissfield is working to revise our ordinances. As we work through these amendments we will be communicating with the public at various stages. These communications may include feedback, public comment opportunities as well as notice of adoption. Our goal is to amend our ordinances to be easily understood by residents, and to structure the ordinances in a way that enhances readability. We welcome comments, suggestions and feedback at all steps of the process. You can reach out to a council member, or the administrator with any feedback. This page will be dedicated to providing updated information to the residents regarding pending amendments, repeals, approved and denied revisions.
Amendments will be structured as follows:
Strikethrough- these items are in the current ordinance and are being proposed to be removed
Highlighted– these items are NOT currently in the ordinance and are being proposed to be added
Amendment- the ordinance is being changed in some way
Repeal- the ordinance in its full is being removed and/or moved. In the event the ordinance is being moved as part of the restructure the repealed ordinance will notate the new ordinance section.
Chapters 5, 8, 9, 11 and 14 are being proposed for restructuring of the Village Ordinances.
Chapter 5 is currently Compensation for Village Officials, this chapter will have Chapters 8, 9, 11 and 14 merged into it as sections rather than multiple chapters related to the same topic. The amendments & repeals are scheduled for a public hearing at the April 10, 2023 meeting. Public is welcome to attend this meeting or may submit written comments prior to the meeting to the Village Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
