Lakewood's City Charter(PDF, 212KB) establishes the legal right of the City to function as a home rule municipality. The original charter was adopted on Nov. 1, 1983, and since has been amended by Lakewood voters.
As the body of laws that govern the city, the Municipal Code is updated frequently as City Council adopts new laws (ordinances) and updates old ones.
