Code of Ordinances

Code of Ordinances

The State Code recommends cities to update their code of ordinances every five (5) years. UERPC staff uses a model code that is provided by the Iowa Association of Regional Councils (IARC). Ordinances passed by the city since it last recodified are incorporated into the model as are those ordinances in the city's existing code that do not appear in the model. The process generally takes three to six months to complete.

Iowa Code Section 380.8 requires that "a city shall compile a code of ordinances containing all of the city ordinances in effect, except grade ordinances, bond ordinances, zoning map ordinances, ordinances vacating streets and alleys, and ordinances containing legal descriptions of urban revitalization areas and urban renewal areas."

UERPC will provide ten (10) hard copies along with an electonic copy of the updated ordinance. To request a quote, please contact
