Codified Ordinances

The City of Vandalia’s Codified Ordinances are available online at American Legal’s web portal. Ordinances that are approved by council during council meetings may not show up on the website for several months to a year, as the online ordinances are only updated one time annually.  Once approved and adopted by council, ordinances generally become effective 30 days after passage by council.
