City Code
Granite Shoals codifies the Ordinances
You can view the Code of Ordinances or view individual ordinances (new Ordinances that are not yet incorporated into the City Code book) below.

On June 25, 2013, City Council passed Ordinance #609 which adopted the Code of Ordinances. This was  the first ‘codification’ of our ordinances. The Code of Ordinances (usually called the City Code Book) is a specially designed book, prepared by Legal Publishers. Granite Shoals first contracted for this work with MuniCode Corporation. The city ordinances which are in effect/active (they haven’t been repealed) were sent to MuniCode. First, MuniCode removed the ceremonial wording from the Ordinances –  such as the part where the signatures are. What is left is the ‘meaty’ part of the law from each ordinance. Second, the ordinances were arranged in subject order, to make finding the current law easy.   Third, they were posted online and you can see the City Code at the link above.  In 2017, the City Council changed to using Franklin Legal Services, out of Lubbock, Texas.  The link above will take you to the website hosted by Franklin Legal.  

The latest update was done through Ord. 763.   The Ordinances below, passed since June 2019 are not included. 
Please call the office of the City Secretary with any questions # 830-598-2424x303.  Thank you.
