Municipal Codes

Our recent conversation about building permits (see raises general questions about municipal codes and just what we need to be aware of as property owners or potential property owners.  Thankfully these days most municipalities provide online access to their applicable code ordinances, for example; Municipal Codes – Lincoln , NE and Municipal Codes – Omaha, NE. In addition to information regarding building codes, property maintenance, and zoning you can find answers to your questions regarding noise control, liquor sales, cemetery management and animal control along with a myriad of other critical things.  Did you you know for example that in the City of Omaha you are limited to keeping just one mini pig weighing no more than one hundred pounds per residence? I had no idea! Seriously, however, before you build that shed, add that chicken coop or plant that tree, or base your decision to purchase a property on your ability to do so, it might just be a good idea to review the applicable codes.
