City Ordinance Examples

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

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

American Legal Publishing Corp and Municode provide many sample ordinances. Listed below are a few cities that choose to publish their own ordinances on their respective websites.

All ordinances should be reviewed by your city attorney before enactment.
