The Walter H. Drane Company provides ordinance codification and related publishing services to municipalities in Ohio and West Virginia. For over fifty-five years, we have codified the ordinances of, or provided model codes to, more than three hundred and fifty municipalities in Ohio and fifty in West Virginia. While many if not most ordinance codification companies offer their services throughout the United States, we have chosen to specialize in the municipal law of Ohio and West Virginia as it relates to the codification of municipal ordinances.
