Index of Iowa Laws
Relating to Cities

This index is intended to answer one of the most frequent questions asked of the League: “Where in the Iowa Code does it talk about…?”

Each letter has a page of topical Code references.

About the Index

This index includes links to Code of Iowa citations that apply to city government operations. Please understand that there is a large body of interpretive case law and Attorney General opinions listed in annotations to the Code of Iowa that may impact the interpretation of these laws. Please consult with your city attorney to review how these laws may apply to your particular situation.

Originally a printed publication, the online version of The Index of Iowa Laws Relating to Cities attempts to give cities an alphabetical topic reference to the Code of Iowa. If you feel we have missed a reference, please let us know.
