Requesting a County Code?

  • Currently, the County Code is available online only. Act 154 of 2018 comprehensively updated and revised the County Code. As with other code revisions, the Commission staff is working with the Legislative Reference Bureau to place the revised County Code into Title 16 (Counties) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes some time in 2020. During this transitional period, no printed copies will be produced. The revised County Code can be found here.
