The Coeur d'Alene City Code, originally published by Book Publishing Company in 1976, has been kept current by regular supplementation. In 1986, Sterling Codifiers began providing supplement service for the City Code. In 1992, Sterling Codifiers prepared a review and research of the City Code, reformatted, compiled a new index and reprinted the City Code under the direction of Jeff Jones, the City Attorney.
During the original codification, the ordinances were compiled, edited and indexed by the editorial staff of Book Publishing Company under the direction of William McFarland, City Attorney.
The Code is organized by subject matter under an expandable three (3) factor decimal numbering system which is designed to facilitate supplementation without disturbing the numbering of existing provisions. Each section number designates, in sequence, the numbers of the title, chapter and section. Thus, section 1.01.010 is section .010, located in chapter 1 of title 1. In most instances, sections are numbered by tens (.010, .020, .030, etc.), leaving nine (9) vacant positions between original sections to accommodate future provisions. Similarly, chapters and titles are numbered to provide for internal expansion.
Page numbers are assigned according to title and chapter numbers, i.e., page 1.01 - 1 represents title 1, chapter 1, page 1 of that chapter; page 12.28 - 11 represents title 12, chapter 28, page 11 of that chapter. This allows for inserting new chapters between existing chapters and easily assigning page numbers. The index pages are numbered I - 1, I - 2, I - 3, etc.
In parentheses following each section is a legislative history identifying the specific sources for the provisions of that section.
Footnotes referring to applicable statutory provisions are located throughout the text. A subject matter index, with cross referencing, locates specific Code provisions by individual section numbers.
This supplement 72 (ALP S-3) brings the Code up to date through Ordinance 3715, passed March 7, 2023.
