The Metro Council adopts or amends code sections by ordinance. Some sections have been repealed or otherwise deleted, as noted in the links below. The code is periodically revised as new ordinances are adopted. As amendments become effective, code chapters or parts of chapters are re-published.
The chief operating officer may also adopt administrative rules to further implement code chapters. Administrative rules have the same force of law as code provisions. Not every code chapter has related administrative rules. When reviewing code chapters, you should also review any applicable administrative rules related to that code chapter.
In addition to the code and administrative rules, Metro’s actions are governed by a home-rule charter that is similar to a constitution.
