In 2015, the City Council approved an agreement with Municode to conduct a recodification of the City Code and host it online moving forward. The recodification included Municode, City staff, consultants, and Councilman Sumner reviewing the City Code and recommending changes due to outdated language, inconsistencies, duplications, poor grammar, etc. and then rearranging the chapters.

Please note that there is a search feature in the top right-hand corner that allows you to search all 19 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.

Please feel free to contact City Hall at (651) 459-5677 with any questions on how to use the new online Code.
