The working of government can be tedious, a bit frustrating (even for those who are in government), sometimes a little costly, but necessary.

Such is the case with Ordinance 2555. It is actually the reworking of Ordinance 2541, a law that was unanimously approved by the governing body just three months ago in August.

That original ordinance added a new section to an existing code which wanted to clarify that any time a Roselle Park Municipal Court Officer serves as a Special Law Enforcement Officer, 그들은 로젤 공원시 법원에 직무에 대한처럼 그 또는 그녀는 임금의 같은 비율을 받게됩니다. This section was added to remove any confusion for the pay rate set in Ordinance 2540 특별 법 집행 임원에 대한.

조례 후 2541 had its first reading in July then its second reading, 공청회, and vote by council in August, the Roselle Park Police Department notified the governing body that the language in that section was not interpreted as it was intended.

How to address that?

With another ordinance.

나는 알고있다, it sounds silly.

There were all these checks, double checks, triple checks, and still it needs to be done again.

Why not just take a pen and put a line through it and be done with it.

잘, because it is important to have bills (proposed laws) go through as much scrutiny as possible. 그리고 네, sometimes, 모두와 그, a government gets it wrong. Not because of malice or spite; sometimes it is just because one step was not followed, one review was not done, or one punctuation was in the wrong place.

It would be easy to say well everyone knows what we mean and not spend the time to do it right, but more often than notsooner or laterit comes back and ends up costing more time and resources than an open process of correction.

In these instances, the new ordinance that will correct a previous ordinanceeven if done just one meeting laterhas to go through the entire process again, including a fee for publication of the introduction and second reading. These costs combined is usually no more than around $30 to $50.

이 때, 44 words had to be removed in order to tighten up the language and remove any ambiguity that could be brought up later.

The wording to be removed is:

이러한 특수 법 집행 책임자는 동시에 로젤 공원 시립 법원에 민간 법원 책임자 역할을해야, 그들은 로젤 공원시 법원에 직무에 대한 수행과 같은 특수 법 집행 책임자는 임금의 같은 비율을 받아야한다

This will only leave the phrase that a Special Law Enforcement Officer receive a salary established in the guides of the prevailing Salary Ordinance.

Again tedious but necessary.
