NOTE: State law requires that city and county ordinances be deposited with their local county law library. For more general information, Minnesota.gov maintains a list of links to local government web sites, including cities, counties and townships. See also the list of county websites maintained by the Association of Minnesota Counties and the city directory maintained by the League of Minnesota Cities. For city ordinances outside Minnesota click here.

The Minnesota State Law Library would like this list to be complete. If we have missed a city or county, please let us know so that we can include it on our list.
