WAYZATA BAY WINDOW: Keeping up with City Ordinances

From the Wayzata Bay Window, the Official Newsletter of the City of Wayzata:

In January, Wayzata streamlined its ordinance books and published them online. In the past when councils changed wording or parts of an ordinance, it was difficult to ensure that all the changes were made in the various City documents and code books.

In a process that took several years, City Clerk Sandy Langley oversaw the combining and updating of codes from many sources, such as police, planning and design, to create one book of current City ordinances.

Though the ordinances were online before the recodification, the search function will be much more comprehensive with the new system, says Langley. “It should be easier for people to look information up. Now if you want to know about dock ordinances, you can type ‘dock’ in, and every mention of the word dock will be pulled up.”

A hard copy will be kept at City Hall for residents to use. The council approved the recodification of the ordinances on Jan. 20.
