These records include Ordinances 1 to 2007-25 enacted by the Poulsbo City Council meetings from February 19, 1908, through July 18, 2007. From 1908 to 1971, the ordinances were numbered consecutively, continuously from 1 to 400. Beginning in 1972, a new numbering system occurs using the year the ordinance passed, counting consecutively each year. The majority of the ordinance between 1908 and 1971 were handwritten; they may be difficult to read and appear faded at times. Ordinances passed in 1941 have a note about printed copies in the minutes. There appears to be an error somewhere. For ordinance 110, the May 7, 1941 minutes has it numbered as 109; for ordinance 111, the September 3 minutes has it numbered as 110; for ordinance 112, the September 3 minutes has it numbered as 111; for ordinance 113, the October 1 minutes has it numbered as 112; and for ordinance 114, the October 1 minutes has it numbered as 113. There are gaps in the record at 83-19, 86-01, 86-50, 87-17, and 90-21. According to the ordinance index, 83-19 was passed but didn’t get signed by the city attorney. Numbers 86-01 and 87-17 were not used; that may be the case for 86-50 and 90-21. Ordinance 2005-09 is missing; there is only a distribution schedule for it.
