City Code

A main function of city government is the implementation of ordinances and laws. The city code lists the laws that have been approved by city councils throughout the history of the city. The code is basically separated into two main sections, the municipal code that encompasses titles 1 through 9 and the development code in title 10. The municipal code includes how the city is administrated, how boards and commissions are run, business licensing, public health and safety, police powers, motor vehicles, utilities, and building regulations. The development code handles how to develop land through annexation, subdividing, zoning, and land uses.
