Village of Gurnee - Municipal Code


The Gurnee Municipal Code constitutes a recodification of the general ordinances of the Village of Gurnee, including all ordinances passed on or before January 24, 2002. It does not contain all ordinances, nor does it contain the Village laws found in the building, fire, zoning, and electrical codes. In order to maintain accuracy of the Municipal Code, supplemental ordinances are added biannually. Printed copies of all codes and ordinances are available at the Village Hall or elsewhere on this web site.

The 1977 Code, Ordinance No. 93-158, and ordinances subsequently adopted by the Village Board were referenced to prepare the recodification of the Gurnee Municipal Code. Printed versions of these resources are also available at the Village Hall.

The online version of the Gurnee Municipal code contains all the words, diagrams, etc. found in the printed version. While every attempt is made to keep this online version current, it should be used for reference only. The most recent ordinances amending the Village of Gurnee Municipal Code may be found at the Village Hall.
