Municipal Legislation

Every year the Municipal Council of Norristown passes laws and enacts rules and regulations aimed at ensuring public safety, promoting government efficiency, and improving the quality of life of everyone who lives, works, or visits our community. Norristown's Council fulfills these obiligations by taking official action by two means: resolutions and ordinances. A resolution is a general statement of the Municipality's position or policy on a particular subject/topic, while  an ordinance is a local law that regulates persons or property and usually relates to a matter of a general and permanent nature.

Finding a Specific Law/Ordinance

Each January, municipal staff submit all of the ordinances enacted 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 (ordinance) that is active and applicable to living, working, or visiting the Municipality. 

 
 
Finding a Specific Resolution

Unlike Ordinances, Resolutions are not permenant in nature and are therefore not included in the General Code and Laws of Norristown. Please visit our Resolution Archive to find a specific Resolution (click here).
