[Adopted 1-26-1999 by Ord. No. 467]
The compilation of the ordinances of the Town of Wallingford, consolidated, codified and arranged into parts, chapters and sections by General Code Publishers Corp., is hereby approved, adopted and enacted as the "Code of the Town of Wallingford, Connecticut," hereinafter the "Code."
The provisions of the Code are intended as a continuation of the ordinances of the Town of Wallingford and not as new enactments, and the effectiveness of such provisions shall date from the date of the adoption of such ordinances. All such provisions of the Code are hereby continued in full force and effect and are hereby reaffirmed as to their adoption by the Town Council.
A copy of the Code has been filed in the office of the Town Clerk of the Town of Wallingford and shall remain there for use and examination by the public until this ordinance is adopted whereupon such copy shall be certified to by the Town Clerk by impressing thereon the seal of the Town of Wallingford, and such certified copy shall remain on file in said office. The enactment and publication of this ordinance, coupled with the availability of a copy 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.
Amendments to any of the ordinances in the Code and new ordinances appropriate for inclusion in the Code shall be deemed to be incorporated into the Code so that reference to the Code shall include any such amendments or ordinances. Whenever such amendments or ordinances shall be enacted, they shall thereafter be printed and inserted in the loose-leaf book containing the Code.
The Town Clerk shall keep up-to-date the certified copy of the book containing the Code of the Town of Wallingford filed in the office of the Town Clerk for use by the public. All amendments to any ordinances adopted by the Town Council and appropriate for inclusion into the Code shall be included therein by temporary attachment of copies of such changes until such changes are printed as supplements to the Code and inserted therein.
In compiling and preparing the ordinances for publication as the Code of the Town of Wallingford, General Code Publishers Corp. made certain grammatical and other nonsubstantive changes in one or more of said ordinances and any such changes are hereby adopted as part of the Code as if the ordinances had been previously written to read as such.
