Can you pass a law at municipal level?

I was given the instructions of:

Create your own point form notes outlining the steps a bill goes through to become a law at the

i) federal,

ii) provincial, and

iii) municipal levels.

I've got federal and provincial steps down, but is it even possible at a municipal level?

    It depends on where the municipality is located. In Alabama, no, it couldn't be done. Municipalities passed ordinances and laws could only be passed by the state legislature. In Washington D.C., yes, the codes passed by the city council have the effects of laws.
