In the field of the Local Entities, the reglamentary legal authority is manifested by the elaboration, approval and execution of the Regulations, Ordinances and Public Announcements.
The Municipal Ordinances are general dispositions dictated by the Municipal Corporations, within the field of their competences and which are must be compulsory accomplished in the territorial term that extends its jurisdiction.
The word Ordinance is usually used for those rules that regulate exterior relations between the Local Administration and those who are administrated. So we can talk about Police Ordinance of Well Government, Ordinances on the land use and edification, etc. The Ordinances impose some duties to the neighbors and to those who are eventually in the municipal township.
In contrast to this, with the Regulation, we make reference to those internal rules that have the aim to regulate the municipal services, although from this come rights and duties for and with the administrated. With the Ordinance, the City Council imposes something; with the Regulation, the City Council supports and limits to itself.
In the local field, the Regulations are “internal” rules that give structure, organize and define functions of the bodies and municipal institutions, so for instance, “Regulation of the Municipal Police”, “Regulation of the Regime of Sessions”, etc.
The Public Announcements are regulatory dispositions by the Mayor exclusively in the field of his competences. They can be generally executed in the whole municipal township because of necessity or urgency reasons or to remembering the fulfillment of preexistent Ordinances or Regulations.
