§ 1-2 Rules of construction; definitions.

A. 
In the construction of this Code and of all ordinances, the following rules shall be observed, unless such construction would be inconsistent with the manifest intent of the City Council:
(1) 
Generally. The provisions of this Code shall be liberally construed to effect the purposes expressed therein or implied from the expression thereof. In case of doubt or ambiguity in the meaning of such provisions the general shall yield to the particular. Reference for interpretation and construction shall tend to further the accomplishment of the elimination of the particular mischiefs for which the provisions were enacted. Words shall be construed in their common and usual significance unless the contrary is clearly indicated.
(2) 
City; corporation. Whenever the words "the City," "this City," "the corporation" or "this corporation" are used, they shall be construed as if the words "of Beacon, New York," followed them.
(3) 
Computation of time. Whenever a notice is required to be given or an act to be done, a certain length of time before any proceeding shall be had, the day on which such notice is given or such act is done shall be counted in computing the time, but the day on which such proceeding is to be had shall not be counted.
(4) 
Delegation of authority. Whenever a provision appears requiring the head of a department of the City to do some act or make certain inspections, it is to be construed to authorize the head of the department to designate, delegate and authorize subordinates to perform the required act or make the required inspection unless the terms of the provision or section designates otherwise.
(5) 
Gender. A word importing the masculine gender only shall extend and be applied to females and to firms, partnerships and corporations as well as to males.
(6) 
Interpretation. In the interpretation and application of any provision of this Code, it shall be held to be the minimum requirements adopted for the promotion of the public health, safety, comfort, convenience and general welfare. Where any provision of the Code imposes greater restrictions upon the subject matter than the general provision imposed by the Code, the provision imposing the greater restriction or regulation shall be deemed to be controlling.
(7) 
Joint authority. All words giving a joint authority to three or more persons or officers shall be construed as giving such authority to a majority of such persons or officers.
(8) 
Name of officer. Whenever the name of an officer is given, it shall be construed as though the words "of the City of Beacon" were added.
(9) 
Nontechnical and technical words. Words and phrases shall be construed according to the common and approved usage of the language, but technical words and phrases and such others as may have acquired a peculiar and appropriate meaning in law shall be construed and understood according to such meaning.
(10) 
Number. A word importing the singular number only may extend and be applied to several persons and things as well as to one person and thing.
(11) 
Or; and. "Or" may be read "and," and "and" may be read "or" if the sense requires it.
(12) 
Tense. Words used in the past or present tense shall include the future as well as the past and present.

§ 1-12 Copy of Charter and Code on file.

A copy of the Charter and Code, in loose-leaf form, has been filed in the office of the Administrator of the City of Beacon and shall remain there for use and examination by the public until final action is taken on this local law; and, if this local law shall be adopted, such copy shall be certified to by the Administrator of the City of Beacon by impressing thereon the Seal of the City of Beacon, and such certified copy shall remain on file in the office of said Administrator to be made available to persons desiring to examine the same during all times while the said Code is in effect.

§ 1-15 Sale of Code book; supplementation.

Copies of the Charter and Code may be purchased from the Administrator of the City of Beacon upon the payment of a fee to be set by resolution of the Council, which Council may also arrange by resolution for procedures for the periodic supplementation thereof.

Any person who, without authorization from the Administrator, changes or amends, by additions or deletions, any part or portion of the Charter or Code of the City of Beacon, or who alters or tampers with such Charter or Code in any manner whatsoever which will cause the legislation of the City of Beacon to be misrepresented thereby, or who violates any other provision of this local law, shall be guilty of an offense and shall, upon conviction thereof, be subject to a fine of not more than $250 or imprisonment for a term of not more than 15 days, or both.
