Municipal Legislation

Every year the Municipal Council of Norristown pass laws and enact rules and regulations aimed at ensuring public safety, promoting government efficiency, and improving the quality of life of everyone who lives, works, or visits the Municipality of Norristown. Each January, municipal staff submit all of the laws (i.e. ordinances and resolutions) authorized by Council in the previous year to be included in Norristown's General Codes and Laws (which is available online HERE). The General Code, along with outlining Norristown's Municipal Charter, encompasses every law that is active and applicable to living, working, or visiting the Municipality. 


This page is dedicated to the Ordinances and Resolutions passed by Council that have yet to be incoporated into the General Codes and Laws governing the Municipality of Norristown.
