The New Florence borough council is in the process of having the existing ordinances codified. This is a multi-year process where all existing borough ordinances are reviewed for compliance with existing federal and state law, updated when required, rescinded where appropriate, then organized into a set of local laws. When completed the entire set of ordinances will be posted online. For now, residents of New Florence can find sets of the ordinances either in the borough building or in the town library.
For now only three ordinances are available online. They are listed below. Click on each link to read the ordinance in its entirety.
