PIQUA CODE OF ORDINANCES COLLECTION

 

INTRODUCTION

 

The Piqua Code of Ordinances is the legal code for the City of Piqua, Ohio.  It is updated yearly to reflect ordinances adopted by the City Commission.  Periodically it is re-codified.  This collection reflects a re-codification in 1970.  The previous code had been published in 1952.  This collection also contains revisions from 1971, 1976, 1977, and 1985.  It also contains ordinances adopted by the Piqua City Commission in the years 1970-1985. 

 

These documents came from a variety of sources.  The biggest part of the documents came from the Flesh Public Library Information and Research Department.  These documents in notebook form were kept for the use of library patrons.  When they were no longer current, these documents were transferred to the Local History Department.  The other source of the documents was the City of Piqua.  In 2001 and 2002 a large quantity of city records were given to the library to be archived.  Six large books of the code were included in these records. 

 

The collection consists of 96 files housed in 2 boxes.  There are no restrictions on the use of these materials.
