Code of Ordinances

The Bentonville Code of Ordinances is a comprehensive publication that identifies Bentonville’s local laws, procedures, administrative responsibilities, duties of boards and commission, and much more. Ordinances and amendments are official documents that the City’s legislative body, the City Council, have passed into law and are locally enforced. Local ordinances may not override or usurp state or federal laws.
