Ordinance are the laws of a municipality (city, village or town) or a county. 

In Minnesota, many municipal and county ordinances are published online. Ordinances that are not published online, are available at your local county law library, the local public library, or city hall.

State law related to municipal ordinances can be found in Minnesota Statute §415.021, and under the index topic Ordinances

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.
