Berwick Borough Code

We have downloaded the Berwick Borough Code broken down by each chapter into this website.  Please understand that the Berwick Borough Code was last revised in the year 2000.  Therefore, a number of the Codes and Ordinances have changed since that date.  For example, the Borough of Berwick no longer uses the BOCA Code, but rather the UCC.  If you have any questions regarding the Borough Code or any of the Borough's Ordinances, please feel free to contact City Hall.
