Super-Charge Your Drafting

Group and associate proposed changes from individuals or committees. Quickly and accurately produce properly formatted documents to attach to council agendas.

Time-Saving Tools

Search for keywords across your municipal code for amendment or repeal; and easily drop them into the correct template. Find neighboring ordinances to copy and use. Eliminate time spent formatting as LegisWeb formats for you.

Single Source of Truth

Centralize all working documents including drafts, readings, templates, existing ordinances, resolutions, and policies. Keep everyone using the right template for the right action, and following the correct process.

LegisWeb ensures precision and accuracy in drafting

Starting with the wrong ordinance amending template. Multiple changes and amendments making version control out of control. Time lags between passage of a new ordinance and codification bringing uncertainty over what’s current law.
