City Codes & Ordinances
The City of Birmingham City Charter was initially adopted in 1933 and has been periodically updated by City voters in the years since its adoption. The Birmingham City Code is updated periodically by ordinances adopted by the Birmingham City Commission. There is occasionally a lag between the adoption of such changes and their appearance in the online version of the City Code. Please check with the City Clerk to determine if there has been a subsequent amendment to the city code.
