Municipal Code

The Hartsville Municipal Code contains the codification and revision of the ordinances of the Town of Hartsville, TN.  By referring to the historical citation appearing at the end of each section, the user can determine the origin of each particular section.  The absence of a historical citation means that the section was added by the codifier.  The word "modified" in the historical citation indicates significant modification of the original ordinance.

The code is arranged into titles, chapters, and sections.  Related matter is kept together, so far as possible, within the same title.  Each section number is complete within itself, containing the title number, the chapter number, and the section of the chapter of which it is a part.  Specifically, the first digit followed by a hyphen, identifies the title number.  The second digit identifies the chapter number, and the last two digits identify the section number.  For example, Title 2, Chapter 1, Section 6, is designated as section 2-106.

By utilizing the table of contents and the analysis preceding each title and chapter of the code, together with the cross references and explanations included as footnotes, the user should locate all the provisions in the code relating to any question that might arise.  However, the user should notes that most of the administrative ordinances (e.g. Annual Budget, Zoning Map Amendments, Tax Assessments, etc...) do not appear in the code.  Likewise, ordinances that have been passed since the last update of the code do not appear here.  Therefore, the user should refer to the town's ordinance book or the town recorder for a comprehensive and up to date review of the town's ordinances.

The Municipal Code was adopted by 3 readings of Ordinance 12-94 of the Town of Hartsville on December 5, 1994.
As stated in the Hartsville/Trousdale County Charter Article 15 §15.09 - Ordinances Continued: All ordinances and resolutions of the Town of Hartsville and of Trousdale County in effect as of the date that this Charter becomes effective, and not inconsistent with the terms and provisions of this Charter, shall be effective as ordinances and resolutions of the Hartsville/Trousdale County Government until they have been repealed, modified, or amended.
