Ordinances are formal written actions of the City Council and are the laws of the City. Ordinances are codified as the Tumwater Municipal Code (TMC). The Tumwater Municipal Code is a collection of all the regulatory and penal ordinances and certain administrative ordinances of the City. Once an Ordinance is adopted by the City Council, it is sent to Code Publishing to become a part of the Tumwater Municipal Code.

Below are the current year’s and last year's Ordinances which can be viewed and printed by clicking on the Ordinance Number.  If you would like to view older Ordinances, please visit the Tumwater Records Center where you can view them and print out a PDF.
