Griffith, Indiana
Online Code of Ordinances


Municipal Code Corporation (MuniCode) in Tallahassee, Florida is the company responsible for maintaining and codifying the Town of Griffith Municipal Codes and Ordinances. One of the additional services they can provide is online access to our ordinances.

The Town of Griffith ordinances are now available online.

Be aware that these online ordinances are NOT updated after every ordinance change approved by the Town Council. Plans are to update the online ordinances 2-4 times a year, depending on the quantity of additions and updates. When you access the online ordinances, the first webpage of the Town of Griffith ordinances will list the date of the last update.

Below are various screen images of the online ordinances along with some basic instructions. We suggest you review that information prior to connecting to the MuniCode web server.

Our experience is that the MuniCode web server is generally available during the day and evening hours. Since they provide this online service to various communities and governments, they do frequent updates in the late night and early morning hours and the online service is unavailable while this is occurring. If you are unable to connect with MuniCode, try again a few hours later.

Comments or questions about the online Town of Griffith Code of Ordinances at MuniCode should be directed to Clerk-Treasurer Office.
