Deposit Requirement

In what may be a little-known municipal law provision, found in Minn. Stat. §415.021, a statutory or home rule charter city or a town, after the adoption of an ordinance, must furnish a copy of the ordinance to the city or town’s county law library or a designated depository.  The city or town may request to be reimbursed a reasonable charge from the law library for the furnished ordinance copy. An identical provision in Minn. Stat. §375.52 applies to counties.
