    LORE has information on regulations for cities what about towns? Is there a place to post town codes? I assume the town code takes precedence.

    If your town has a web site you can frequently find a link to the towns ordinances (sometimes actually hosted on that site but more likely hosted on municode or another site (name escapes me at the moment). You also need to find the town charter and/or articles of incorporation, and the equivalent information at the state level.

    Town ordinances are not the end all and be all of the law (despite what the town may think).
