Cities operate daily mostly through ordinances. An ordinance is an official and permanent action of Erlanger’s City Council that may be punishable by civil or criminal penalty if violated. The City Clerk must maintain all ordinances in a minute book. They are also indexed or codified in a code of ordinances (arranged into a systematic collection). The City of Erlanger codifies their ordinances at the end of each calendar year.

The link to access our codified ordinances is City of Erlanger Codified Ordinances. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 859-727-2525. Thank you.

Please Note: Ordinances are not official until they have been passed by council and have been published by law in the Kentucky Enquirer.
