DELANO, MN Delano city staff and the Delano City Council have been working on updating the City of Delano’s ordinances and codes. The last time the city has undertaken this task was in 1993, and prior to that, 1976.
The recodification process incorporates ordinance amendments that have occurred over the past 16 years and also reviews and updates ordinances with federal, state, or county laws that have changed.
The process also takes a look at adding new regulations that may be required as the community grows, or deleting obsolete ordinances that are no longer applicable.
At a special work session Jan. 27, the city council conducted its final reading of the draft city code. The city’s general code includes eight chapters, covering city operations and administration, public property regulations, public protection and general licensing, alcoholic beverages licensing and regulations, sewer and water rules, traffic and parking regulations, and nuisances and offenses.
The entire proposed city code or individual chapters are able to be viewed online at www.delano.mn.us, clicking the link from the homepage. Paper copies may also be made available at reasonable production costs.
If any citizen wishes to comment on a particular code, contact Delano City Clerk Marlene Kittock at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (763) 972-0566. Comments may also be mailed to Delano City Hall, PO Box 108, Delano, MN 55328 or faxed to (763) 972-6174.
