Ordinances and Codes

An ordinance is an act of the County Board creating a local law of a general and permanent nature in unincorporated Lake County. Examples include building, public nuisance (noise), smoke-free and public health ordinances.

All codes (except for building codes) are accessible through the Code of Ordinances Portal*. Building codes are accessible with Planning, Building and Development.

*Work in Progress
Lake County has worked with each department and elected office to compile and codify all County Codes and Ordinances.  This is still a work in progress.  Thank you for your patience.
