This comprises the codification of the ordinances of the Borough of Troy. Troy Borough was formed in 1845 from the Township of Troy.
The Code of Ordinances of the Borough of Troy was adopted by the Borough of Troy Borough Council on [Date] by Ordinance Number__________.
The Code contains four parts which are (1) the valid current ordinances of the Borough of Troy contained in Chapters 1 through 27, (2) the Appendix, which lists by abstracted title all ordinances of a temporary or “one time” nature, (3) the Table of disposition of each ordinance ever enacted by the Borough of Troy, and (4) the Index, which is an alphabetical arrangement of subjects.
In the Code each Chapter is separated by a divider tab, and specific ordinances can be located by subject on the contents page at the beginning of each Chapter. The Index may also be used to search for a subject when one is looking for general information on a particular subject, or if it is not known in which Chapter the subject might be found. The Appendix consists of several general categories containing a chronological listing of short subject descriptions along with a reference to the original ordinance and its date of enactment, if known.
The Table of disposition indicates what action has been taken by the Borough of Troy Borough Council with regard to every ordinance ever enacted. An ordinance has either been: (1) specifically repealed; (2) superseded by another ordinance; (3) is located in a Chapter of the Code book; or (4) is located in the Appendix. Annual tax rate and budget ordinances are located only in the Table of Disposition. The Table of Disposition is a cross reference to the original ordinance books of the Borough of Troy, and to the location within the Code of each ordinance by number.
