City Code

Just as each State has its own laws, cities have the authority to create their own ordiances.  These ordiances, once adopted, are assembled into a book that is called the “CITY CODE”.

The “CITY CODE”of the City of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, is published online as a convenience to citizens and the business community. Although every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the material published online, the only official edition of the “CITY CODE” is the version maintained by the Deputy City Clerk.
