Codified Ordinances

Laws that govern the City of Mentor-on-the-Lake are known as ordinances and they are compiled into the Mentor-on-the-Lake Codified Ordinance book. New laws and regulations that are passed each year are updated in January or February by American Legal Publishing Company. To access the codified ordinances, click here. You can review the City Charter, zoning regulations and traffic laws, just to name a few of the chapters of the codified ordinances. Also, this website has a search feature that allows you to type in a word, such as “dog”, and it will show you all of the sections of the codified ordinances where the word “dog” appears.

Please remember that any laws passed during the current year will not be updated (codified) until the beginning of the next year. Click here to view the current years legislation.
