City Ordinances

The Municipal Code of Aberdeen is a compilation of the applicable city ordinances (rules, regulations, or standards of a municipality) and sets forth Aberdeen's laws.  Ordinances generally go into effect 20 days after publication in the city's official newspaper.  As applicable ordinances are adopted, the city clerk forwards them to the code publisher.  The publisher will then add, delete, or change the code sections as prescribed by the ordinances.  
      
Aberdeen City Code is a PDF file updated by the City Attorney and is the most current version of the ordinances included in the Municipal Code.  The PDF does not have the same features as the web-based version but is linked and searchable.

Municode is a web-based version of the Municipal Code and is updated when the publisher issues a supplement.  Supplements to the Municipal Code are generally done on an annual basis.
