City Ordinances
2010 Revised Ordinances

Note: The City of Sturgeon was first organized in 1856, however the city's records only go back to May 8, 1934.  (There is a copy of a book published in 1894 purporting to contain a codification of the city's ordinances up through May 8, 1934, but the ordinances themselves are missing.)  Because the earlier records are missing, it is unknown if anything has been left out of this current codification.  The City of Sturgeon has attempted to solve this problem by adopting this entire book as a new ordinance, and repealing everything that came earlier (with minor exceptions).

Please remember that it is possible for anything electronic to be easily modified-- sometimes by people with malicious intent.  The Website version will be updated to include subsequent updates that are approved by the Board of Alderman in the form of new ordinances.  However, the paper document is the one that is official.  If a variation appears in the electronic version that is not supported by a paper ordinance, it will be invalid.  Do not rely on the electronic version when something is really important, unless first you compare it to the paper version to ensure accuracy.

These documents have been reviewed for typographical and content errors, however it is possible errors have been overlooked.  At this point the errors are "Official" until they are corrected by a new ordinance.  Please call anything that you think is an error to the attention of the City.
