There are two documents that determine how your local government is run. These are the Charter and the Code. The Charter includes much of the operational basis for the city, including the composition of the City Council and the boundaries of the city. The Charter only can be changed through a referendum (vote) of the city's registered voters.
The Code is the document that contains much more detailed information on how the city is run, from animal control laws to the environment, planning and zoning and everything in between.
The Clermont Municipal Code represents the most current regulations adopted by the city. The document is a compilation of ordinances of the City of Clermont. Following adoption by the City Council, ordinances of a general and permanent nature are codified into the Municipal Code. Codification is completed annually.
