Village Ordinances

The Village of Shepherd is General Law Village. The General Law Village Act (Public Act 3 of 1895, as amended) serves as the Village Charter. The Act establishes the foundation and framework for the structure of the Village government. Under the authority conveyed to the Village by the General Law Village Act, over the years the Village Council has adopted local ordinances which govern activity in the community. In 2006 the Village completed a codification of ordinances adopted at that time.
