Model Ordinances

 

 

This section is for those who are interested in adopting an ordinance regulating OWBs in their respective communities. Below are some model ordinance links that should be helpful to public administrators in adopting rules.  This section is designed to be a place to collectively view the ordinances, rather than having to search the site for the links. This is by all means NOT a comprehensive list of OWB ordinances. This is simply some examples found while doing research on OWBs. This is a good starting point for those who may be seeking to pass an ordinance in their community. . If you would like to see an ordinance added please let us know.
