Municipal Code

The Sheridan Municipal Code is a codification of the general and permanent ordinances of the City of Sheridan, Oregon.

The code is organized by subject matter under an expandable three-factor decimal numbering system which is designed to facilitate supplementation without disturbing the numbering of existing provisions. Each section number designates, in sequence, the numbers of the title, chapter, and section. Thus, Section 2.12.040 is Section .040, located in Chapter 2.12 of Title 2. In most instances, sections are numbered by tens (.010, .020, .030, etc.), leaving nine vacant positions between original sections to accommodate future provisions. Similarly, chapters and titles are numbered to provide for internal expansion.

In parentheses following each section is a legislative history identifying the specific sources for the provisions of that section. This legislative history is complemented by an ordinance disposition table, following the text of the code, listing by number all ordinances, their subjects, and where they appear in the codification.

A subject-matter index, with complete cross-referencing, locates specific code provisions by individual section numbers.

The City Code, including the City Charter, is online through the Municipal Code Corporation.  A searchable database is available by following the link on this page.
