Any and all additions, deletions, amendments or supplements to any of the local laws known collectively as the "Code of the Village of Old Westbury," or any new local laws or resolutions, when enacted or adopted in such form as to indicate the intention of the Board of Trustees to be a part thereof, shall be deemed to be incorporated into such Code so that reference to the Code shall be understood and intended to include such additions, deletions, amendments or supplements.
