    Volume 1 of the Los Angeles County Code is a codification of the general and permanent ordinances of Los Angeles County, California, published in 1987 by Book Publishing Company.

    During original codification, the ordinances were compiled, edited and indexed by the editorial staff of Book Publishing Company under the direction of the office of the County Counsel of Los Angeles County. The Los Angeles County Code is being kept current with regular supplementation by Municipal Code Corporation.



    The Los Angeles County Code is organized by subject matter under an expandable, three-factor decimal numbering system which is designed to facilitate future changes with minimum disturbance to current regulations. Each section number includes in its sequence the title, chapter and section number. For example, Section 1.04.030 is Section 30 (.030) in Chapter 4 (.04) of Title 1. In most instances, sections are numbered by tens (.010, .020, .030, etc.), leaving nine vacant positions between original sections to accommodate new provisions. Chapters and titles are also numbered to provide for expansion.

    In parentheses following each code section is a legislative history note, which lists all ordinances which have affected that section since the date of original enactment.

    Footnotes to statutory provisions and to related code provisions in other code volumes appear at the end of each title.

    A subject-matter index covering all of the provisions of this volume and locating subjects by code section number is set out at the end of the volume.

    A complete Ordinance List and Disposition Table is set forth in Volume 8 of the code; it lists all the county's ordinances, gives an outline of their contents and subjects, and indicates the chapter of the code where each ordinance's provisions appear.
