Codification of Ordinances


In order to follow and enforce local ordinances, people must be able to efficiently access and reference them. Codification is the way municipalities make it easy for people to find and read the laws they are expected to follow. Codification is the process of organizing and recording all permanent ordinances adopted by the governing body into a code book in which the laws are arranged by subject matter. This book (the municipal code) gives each ordinance a permanent identifying number, and usually includes table of contents index, so people can easily look up the law on any particular topic.
