New Laws

Adopted legislation that has not yet been incorporated into the Code, and has been submitted to General Code, can be found in the New Laws section. Once a law is codified and the Code's content reflects it, the law no longer appears as a New Law. However, users can view a list of all legislation, old and new, in the Disposition List.
Adding New Laws
New Laws typically appear within hours of being sent to General Code. Authorized municipal staff can email New Laws to General Code.
