The Municipal Code of Aberdeen is a compilation of the applicable city ordinances (rules, regulations, or standards of a municipality) and sets forth Aberdeen's laws. Ordinances generally go into effect 20 days after publication in the city's official newspaper. As applicable ordinances are adopted, the city clerk forwards them to the code publisher. The publisher will then add, delete, or change the code sections as prescribed by the ordinances. The revised ordinances are published in book form and available for review and copying at the city Finance Office, the Brown County Clerk of Court, and the Brown County law library.
Aberdeen City Code is a PDF file updated by the City Attorney and is the most current version of the ordinances included in the Municipal Code. The PDF does not have the same features as Municode, the web-based version, but is linked and searchable through the web browser Internet Explorer but not Chrome.
Municode is a web-based version of the Municipal Code and is updated when the publisher issues a supplement. Supplements to the Municipal Code are generally done on an annual basis.
