The charter of the City of Cleveland was first adopted by the electors at a special election on July 1, 1913, certified to the Secretary of State on July 4, 1913, and took effect on January 1, 1914, a little more than a year after Ohio Constitution Article XVIII, the "Home Rule Amendment," was adopted.

The Codified Ordinances of the city of Cleveland, also known as "The Code," are the ordinances of a permanent and general nature of the city of Cleveland.
