Code of Ordinances In Pennsylvania, most cities and towns create laws or legislation through use of the ordinance system. An ordinance is a permanent rule of action established by law or statute and, is used to designate the enactments of the local legislative body. For example, items such as: establishment of government, zoning, use of roads, trash collection, sewer and waste, etc. may be governed by local law.
On August, 9, 2011, the Board of Supervisors took the historic step to codify all current legislation by adopting The Bethel Code (PDF), also known as Ordinance No. 198. This is the process whereby all laws are collected and arranged into a "code" which is scientifically ordered, arranged and promulgated by the legislative body.
Currently, all ordinances through No. 195 have been codified. Periodically, new legislation, not yet codified, will be added to the Code. Until then, the ordinances will be readily viewable as stand alone documents.
