Island County Code

The Island County Code as of March 31, 2014 and subsequent updates (Ordinances) are available for viewing using Adobe Acrobat Reader. The Island County code book is officially updated once a year and the on-line version is updated quarterly.

The Code of Island County is a complete codification of the general Ordinances and Resolutions of the County of Island, Washington and is intended to be a useful manual and ready reference for all citizens. All Ordinances and Resolutions, of a general or permanent nature, are conveniently arranged in the Code by subject. Ordinances and Resolutions which are not of a general or permanent nature are not available in the code or through the Ordinances link available on this website.

The Ordinance and Resolution provisions are divided into titles, chapters and sections. Each section is followed by a legislative history in parentheses. Footnotes referring to applicable state law and cross-reference to other related Code provisions appear throughout this volume. The index is keyed to the numbers of the Code.

"Exhibits" and "attachments" are not available in digital form. To view those documents refer to the official Island County Code available at the locations indicated below.

Code provisions are from time-to-time amended, repealed or supplemented by later-enacted legislation. To ensure that a relevant current Code section is up-to-date since the last supplement you should check the ordinances adopted since the last update.
