St. Tammany Parish Code of Ordinances now Live and Online

Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President, and Steve Stefancik, 2017 St. Tammany Parish Council Chairman, announced today that a new Code of Ordinances, formulated in 2017 through a partnership with the Municipal Code Corporation, is now live here. Changes to the code include: a modernized digital version with increased functionality that will be updated on a monthly basis; revised language that, where appropriate, replaces language referring to a Police Jury form of government, and a more user-friendly version with search capabilities. This initiative was undertaken in order to provide transparent and user-friendly access to the laws and codes of St. Tammany Parish Government, including the Charter, Code of Ordinances and appendixes. The ordinance was formally adopted at the December 7, 2017 Parish Council Meeting. 

“This newly formatted code is something our residents have wanted, and we are happy to offer them this updated convenience — a modernized, digital version of the Code of Ordinances to save time, and provide clarity when questions arise,” said, Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President. “We work with the Council every day in bringing Parish Government services into line with the current technological demands, and we take pride in offering services such as these to our residents.”

“We revisited the Code of Ordinances and worked very hard to make it easier to read, understand and navigate,” said Steve Stefancik, 2017 St. Tammany Parish Council Chairman. “We appreciate the input of our constituents and the hard work of everyone involved to make this happen.”
