I want to know what a City ordinance means. Who should I call?

The City department charged with the day-to-day administration and enforcement of an ordinance can answer general questions regarding how the ordinance is applied by the City. If the department is unable to answer your question, they may refer you to the City Attorney. While the City Attorney cannot give you legal advice, he will try to help in any appropriate way he can.

The Marshalltown City Code of Ordinances is also found on this website.
