Myerstown Borough Code of Ordinances

Link to online Code of Ordinances

All municipalities in Pennsylvania operate through local laws, called ordinances, which are adopted by the governing body and enforced to provide for the public health, safety, and welfare of its residents.  Examples of ordinances include the removal of public nuisances; rules (called codes) for an improved quality of life (weed control, removal of non-registered vehicles, animal control, and noise abatement are examples); and aesthetic improvements such as land development and zoning ordinances.

The current Code of Ordinances was prepared by General Code and adopted by Borough Council on November 14, 2023 by Ord. 874.
The Code contains four parts which are:

  1. The valid current ordinances of the Borough of Myerstown contained in Chapters 1 through 27.
  2. The Appendix, which lists by abstracted title all ordinances of a temporary or “one time” nature.
  3. The Table to the disposition of each ordinance ever enacted by the Borough of Myerstown.
  4. The Table to Disposition of Significant Resolutions
The Appendix consists of several general categories containing a chronological listing of short subject descriptions along with a reference to the original ordinance and its date of enactment, if known.

The Table to the disposition indicates what action has been taken by the Borough of Myerstown Borough Council with regard to every ordinance ever enacted.  An ordinance has either been:
  1. Specifically repealed,
  2. Superseded by another ordinance,
  3. Is located in a Chapter of the Code book, or
  4. Is located in the Appendix.
