Municipal Code

Ordinances make up the local laws of the city. An ordinance is a legislative act prescribing general rules of organization or conduct relating to the corporate affairs of the municipality. Council action shall be taken by ordinance when required by law, or where prescribed conduct may be enforced by penalty. Once a ordinance is adopted by the City Council, it is sent to Code Publishing to become a part of the Forks Municipal Code (link opens in new tab).

Business Licenses & Taxes

The City of Forks does not issue city-specific business licenses at this time, but business licenses are required by the State of Washington. Local sales taxes are collected through the Washington State Dept. of Revenue.
