A copy of the Code of the Borough of Wenonah, County of Gloucester, State of New Jersey in loose-leaf form, has been filed in the office of the Borough Clerk of the Borough of Wenonah and shall remain there for the use and examination of the public until final action is taken on this ordinance, and if this ordinance shall be adopted, such copy shall be certified to by the Clerk of the Borough of Wenonah by impressing thereon the seal of the Borough of Wenonah, as provided by law, and such certified copy shall remain on file in the office of the Borough Clerk of the Borough of Wenonah to be made available to persons desiring to examine the same during all times while the said Code is in effect.

Whenever such additions, amendments or supplements to the Code of the Borough of Wenonah, County of Gloucester, State of New Jersey, shall be adopted, they shall thereafter be printed and, as provided hereunder, inserted in the loose-leaf book containing the said Code, as amendments and supplements thereto.
It shall be the duty of the Borough Clerk or someone authorized and directed by the Borough Clerk to keep up-to-date the certified copy of the book containing the Code of the Borough of Wenonah, required to be filed in the office of the Borough Clerk for the use of the public.

Copies of the Code book containing the Code of the Borough of Wenonah, County of Gloucester, State of New Jersey, may be purchased from the Clerk of the Borough of Wenonah, upon the payment of a fee to be set by resolution of the Mayor and Council, who may also arrange, by resolution, for procedures for the periodic supplementation thereof.

Sufficient copies of the Code of the Borough of Wenonah, County of Gloucester, State of New Jersey shall be maintained in the office of the Borough Clerk for inspection by the public at all times during regular office hours. The enactment and application of this adopting ordinance, coupled with availability of copies of the Code for inspection by the public shall be deemed, held and considered to be due and legal publication of all provisions of the Code for all purposes.
