City Ordinances passed through the end of 2016 have been incorporated in an update to our City Code of Ordinances.
The most recent copy of the Newport Code of Ordinances can be searched online.
If you would like a copy of an ordinance, please use an Open Records Request Form.
A change by the Kentucky Legislature in 2018 allows publication of Ordinances online on the City website rather than running lengthy and expensive advertisement in the newspaper. Beginning with Ordinances requiring publication in July 2018, these publications will be listed below for a period of one year. A brief ad with URL reference is published in the newspaper.
