Bylaws are local ordinances enacted by the City of Medicine Hat that serve to maintain order in the community and ensure compliance with established rules.

Policies are the City's structured directives that provide a consistent framework for decision-making and actions. Most of the City's policies are inward-facing in that they guide the behaviours of the employee.
