Municipal ordinances, once adopted, are legally enforceable local laws. The process for adopting or repealing an ordinance is carefully outlined by Vermont state statue. An ordinance, unlike a policy, is “‘an expression of municipal will affecting the conduct of the inhabitants generally, or of a number of them under some general designation.’ City of Barre v. Perry & Scribner, 82 Vt. 301 (1909).” Below is a list of Ordinances passed by the Town of Sharon.
