Ordinances

In the 2017 Legislation session, a new statute in Minnesota chapter 415 was created the requires certain types of notice for many proposed ordinances or proposed amendment to ordinances.   Only interim ordinances have been exempted from this notice requirement.  Therefore, the City of Inver Grove Heights will use this page as the place to post the proposed ordinance.  

 The City will also notify by:
•Providing email notification of the proposed ordinances.  If you're interested, you may sign up for ordinance notifications.
•Posting the ordinance on this page.
•Having available upon request the proposed ordinance at the front counter. 

There are three readings that are required for an ordinance approval unless the Council determines that the ordinance can be accepted in one reading.  Public hearing notices are published in the Southwest Review the Sunday before the city council meeting.  

Please note that failure to provide a notice does not invalidate the adoption or amended ordinance.
