City of Centerville v. Miller

| Iowa | Dec 7, 1881

Adams, Ch. J.

i. municipal ordinance. The question as to whether a city or incorporated town, under the general incorporation law of Iowa, can punish by fine the keeper of a disorderly house was ruled upon in the case of The City of Centerville v Miller, ante, page 56. It was held that the city or town had such power. The ordinance in question therefore was valid and the court had jurisdiction of the alleged offense. We think that the demurrer was properly overruled.
