Code of Ordinances

The City Clerk keeps a hard copy of the official Murray Code of Ordinances. If there is a specific section that is needed, please contact the City Clerk at 270-762-0300 ext. 1116.  An online version of the Code of Ordinances is now available at: http://www.amlegal.com/murray_ky/

Process of Codification

Once an ordinance is proposed, discussed, read twice (at two separate City Council meetings) and approved upon second reading by City Council, it is officially passed and signed by the mayor and city clerk (see KRS 83A.060). The ordinance is then published and codified. The codification process extracts necessary information and compiles and organizes it in a way that makes it legally presentable in document form. The original is still the "official" ordinance, but the ''chapter and verse'' codified ordinance is what is most commonly referenced.
