The Yuma City Code is a compilation of ordinances, commonly known as local laws, which are adopted by the City Council. The Yuma City Code is amended by ordinances that are adopted by the Yuma City Council. Both the Yuma City Charter and the Yuma City Code are available on-line to view, search and print.
