The Porter County, Indiana Municipal Code, originally published by Book Publishing Company, has been kept current by regular supplementation by Matthew Bender & Company, Inc., its successor in interest.
Beginning with Supplement 8, Municipal Code Corporation will be keeping this code current by regular supplementation.
During original codification, the ordinances were compiled, edited and indexed by the editorial staff of Book Publishing Comapny under the direction of Gwenn Rinkenberger, county attorney.
The code is organized by subject matter under an expandable three-factor decimal numbering system which is designed to facilitate supplementation without disturbing the numbering of existing provisions. Each section number designates, in sequence, the numbers of the Title, chapter, and section. Thus, Section 2.12.040 is Section .040, located in Chapter 2.12 of Title 2. In most instances, sections are numbered by tens. (.10, .020, .030, etc), leaving nine vacant positions betwen original sections to accommodate future provisions. Similarly, chapters and titles are numbered to provide for internal expansion.
In parentheses following each section is a legislative history identifying the specific sources for the provisions of that section. This legislative history is complemented by an ordinance disposition table, following the text of the code, listing by number all ordianances, their subjects, and where they appear in the codification; and beginning with Supplement No. 8, legislation can be tracked using the "Code Comparative Table and Disposition List."
A subject-matter index, with complete cross-referencing, locates specific code provisions by individual section numbers.
This suppliement brings the Code up to date through Ordinance No. 10-07, passed June 15, 2010.
