A local ordinance is a law usually found in a municipal code. In the United States, these laws are enforced locally in addition to state law and Federal law.
Municipal Codes govern a local community. All incorporated Cities have them and they can contain rules ranging from where business can be located to how tidy properties should be kept to what kinds of animals can be kept as pets. Citizens are always encouraged to read the codes governing the community they live in.
