Code of Ordinances

Looking for something on our website?  Call or email if you need something Google can't find!        

Local laws that have been passed by the Town Council are called ordinances.  They are mostly* compiled into a "codified" book of law by Municipal Code Corporation. Please click here for the complete set of searchable, codified ordinances for the Town of Indian River Shores.  The Municipal Code website contains most, but not all, of our approved ordinances.  
Many inquiries are received about the Town's requirement for garaging trucks, boats and campers.  That answer may be found in the Land Development Code, which has a search field just above the printed PDF page.  Please click here for the Land Development Code as last updated June 2016.
The Comprehensive Plan as last published in 1990 is here:
