At their July 16, 2015 meeting, the City Council approved an agreement with Municode to conduct a recodification of the current City Code and host it online. Municode has placed a temporary version of the City's current Code online while it goes through the recodification process.

Please note that there is a search feature in the top right-hand corner that allows you to search all 13 Chapters at once for items such as "Fences," "Nuisances," or "Licensing." There is also a search feature in each individual Chapter/Section that allows you to search for specific words and will bring up each page where the word is found.
