You primarily have examined law at the state and federal levels, but as a public administrator or policy practitioner, you are perhaps more likely to encounter local law on a regular basis. Local ordinances impact many aspects of daily life. Construction standards, business licensing, rent control, noise control, public health and safety, public parking, and zoning are just a few of the areas that are governed by such ordinances. Due to the broad spectrum of laws, it is vital to know how to research local ordinances. It also is important to be able to interpret the law so that you are aware of how a law impacts its community.
