City Ordinance Examples

The Member Legal Services Department maintains a large collection of municipal ordinances from cities around the state and country. Several model ordinances that can be used as a guide by municipalities in drafting their own local legislation are also available.  

To request a model ordinance or to share your ordinances with other KLC members, please contact the legal staff at 1-800-876-4552.

Below are examples for your use.  All ordinances should be reviewed by your city attorney before enactment.
