(A) Immediately prior to introduction, each ordinance and resolution shall have assigned to it by the City Clerk a bill number. The bill number shall consist of a letter prefix, as prescribed in this section, followed by the last two digits of the calendar year in which introduced, and followed by the number in the sequence of introduction within each particular month. All bills, regardless of subject matter, shall be numbered in the same sequence for each month.
(B) Upon passage of an ordinance, the Clerk shall assign to it a number in the order of its passage, each of the five types of ordinances to be numbered in a separate sequence, beginning with Number one for each such type, together with the appropriate prefix therefor as prescribed in this section.
(C) The prefix for appropriation ordinances, to be used both on bill numbers and ordinance numbers, shall be the letter “A.” The prefix for special ordinances, to be used both for bill numbers and ordinance numbers, shall be the letter “S.” The prefix for zoning map ordinances, both for bill numbers and ordinance numbers, shall be the letter “Z.” The prefix for annexation ordinances, both for bill numbers and ordinance numbers, shall be the letter “X.” And the prefix for general ordinances, both for bill numbers and ordinance numbers shall be the letter “G.”
(D) The Clerk shall also assign a number to each resolution upon its adoption. Resolutions shall be numbered in a separate sequence, beginning with number one to which there shall be added the prefix “R.” The same prefix shall be used with bill numbers assigned to resolutions at the time of introduction.
(E) (1) Any proposal which contemplates action relating only to the internal procedures of a council, its staff, or relates to appointment or confirmation of appointments made exclusively by the council, shall be designated "a proposal for a council resolution." The proposal shall be properly before the council for final action at the same meeting at which it is introduced, unless the president or the council refers or postpones the proposal.
(2) The Clerk of the Council shall designate each such proposal when passed by a majority vote of Council as a Special Council Resolution and shall distinguish each such Special Council Resolution by a serial numbering system which is first denominated by year and then by sequential number.
