County and Municipal Law Resources
American Legal Publishing Online Library
American Legal Publishing provides access to its city and town codes of ordinances. Covering more than 25 states, the publisher informs visitors of the date of the last ordinance included for each municipal code. Visitors can choose between framed and unframed versions. They can also browse or search the individual codes.
General Code Publishers offers numerous municipal codes in folio infobases. Most are from cities and counties in the northeastern United States.
Municipal Code Corporation
Municipal Code Corporation publishes codified ordinances for many local governments. Its web site offers free access to Folio Infobases for more than 100 municipalities in the United States. Unfortunately, little help exists for formulating queries and displaying search results.
