Look No Further, My Friend, The
Municipal Code Has The Answers!
The Jersey City Municipal Code (Code) is a
compilation of local laws and legislation

Over the long course of Jersey City’s history, the Code
has required constant updates, which are currently being
done by the Municipal Code Corporation.

Extremely user friendly, the Code is organized alphabetically by
subject & outlines the duties and responsibilities of all those who
live, work, visit, conduct business and/or provide services
 in Jersey City. The noise ordinance, btw,  is #222
