Statutes: (Additional statutes, regulations & opinions may apply to your specific situation.)

  • Minnesota Statutes §415.021, index topic Ordinances

    The Legal Terms page from the Fifth District courts defines an Ordinance as: A municipal statute. A law passed by a city or village.

    More and more Minnesota cities and counties are making their ordinances available online. If they are not online, they should be available at your local county law library, the local public library or city hall.

    DISCLAIMER:  As librarians and not lawyers, we can suggest resources but cannot give legal advice (such as which form to file), or legal opinions, (such as how a statute might apply to particular facts.)  To do so could be considered the unauthorized practice of law.  Even though we try to suggest materials that will be of help, further research is usually required to find a complete and correct answer.  For many questions, the best answer may be to consult an attorney.  For links to resources on finding an attorney click here.
