Legislative decision of board subject to referendum--Administrative decision
not subject to referendum.
Any legislative decision of a board of county commissioners is subject
to the referendum process. A legislative decision is one that enacts a permanent law or lays down
a rule of conduct or course of policy for the guidance of citizens or their officers. Any matter of a
permanent or general character is a legislative decision.
No administrative decision of a governing body is subject to the referendum process, unless
specifically authorized by this code. An administrative decision is one that merely puts into
execution a plan already adopted by the governing body itself or by the Legislature. Supervision of
a program is an administrative decision. Hiring, disciplining, and setting the salaries of employees
are administrative decisions.
