Ordinances

Setting Ordinances

Dream on Isabelle...

Once you’ve earned a 100% approval rating, you’ll be able to enact town ordinances. Town ordinances allow you to enact certain regimes in your town.

You can do this by speaking to Isabelle from the mayor’s chair and asking her about the town’s ordinances.

There are four different ordinances that may be enacted, but only one may be enacted at a time. You must pay 20000 bells whenever you change an ordinance.

**Ordinance** **Effect**
Beautiful Town Cockroaches never appear in your house Weeds rarely grow Flowers never wilt Villagers plant and water flowers more often
Early Bird Shops open and close earlier Villagers are awake earlier and sleep earlier
Night Owl Shops open and close later Villagers get up and go to sleep later
Bell Boom Shops buy and sell at higher prices Re-Tail will buy two items at a premium each day You earn more medals from Island Tours

If you’re taking extended leave from the game, always set the ordinance to Beautiful Town so there are much fewer weeds when you return!
