Code of Ordinances

The King William County Code of Ordinances can be accessed and searched online through a service called Municode. Municode is updated with new and changed County Ordinances affecting the Code several times throughout the year as necessary. Because the update process can take time, Ordinances which affect the Code and are not yet amended to the online code are listed here for your information.

Listed and linked below are the newest Ordinances which are in the process of being amended to the online Code. The Ordinances still carry the weight of law as of the date they were approved by the Board of Supervisors.
