Ordinances

Beginning July 1, 2012, Kansas cities are now allowed to publish summaries of regular ordinances in their official city newspapers if full versions of ordinances are made available to the public on City websites (HB 2166). This legislation was passed to save on publication costs. This legislation applies only to regular ordinances. Charter ordinances must still be published in their entirety for two consecutive weeks pursuant to Article 12, § 5 of the Kansas Constitution.

City of Lansing ordinance summaries and other required notices are published in the Leavenworth Times.
