Municipal Codes

Are you looking for local town and village codes? Do you need to know when trash pickup is, or when overnight street parking is no longer allowed? All this information and more can be found in the codes of your municipality. While we will no longer provide access to these bulky and often hard-to-use books, codes for Rockland County, the Town of Haverstraw, and the Villages of Haverstraw and West Haverstraw are now available online in a clear and easy-to-use format.

The links are as follows:
