Upon the adoption by the Board of Trustees, this Village Code is hereby declared to be and shall hereafter constitute the official Village Code of Annawan. This Village Code of ordinances shall be known and cited as the ANNAWAN VILLAGE CODE and is hereby published by authority of the Board of Trustees and shall be supplemented to incorporate the most recent legislation of the Village as provided in Section 1-1-3 of this Chapter. Any reference to the number of any section contained herein shall be understood to refer to the position of the same number, its appropriate chapter and title heading, and to the general penalty clause relating thereto, as well as to the section itself, when reference is made to this Village Code by title in any legal documents. (1998 Code)
The Village Code, as hereby presented in printed form, shall hereafter be received without further proof in all courts and in administrative tribunals of this State as the ordinances of the Village of general and permanent effect, except the excluded ordinances enumerated in Section 1-2-1 of this Title. (1998 Code)
Any ordinance amending the Village Code shall set forth the title, chapter and section number of the section or sections to be amended, and this shall constitute sufficient compliance with any statutory requirement pertaining to the amendment or revision by ordinance of any part of this Village Code. All such amendments or revisions by ordinance shall be immediately forwarded to the codifiers, and the said ordinance material shall be prepared for insertion in its proper place in each copy of this Village Code. Each such replacement page shall be properly identified and shall be inserted in each individual copy of the Village Code. (1998 Code)
It shall be deemed unlawful for any person to alter, change, replace or deface in any way any section or any page of this Village Code in such a manner that the meaning of any phrase or order may be changed or omitted. Replacement pages may be inserted according to the official instructions when so authorized by the Board of Trustees. The Village Clerk shall see that the replacement pages are properly inserted in the official copies maintained in the office of the Clerk. Any person having custody of a copy of the Village Code shall make every effort to maintain said Code current as to the most recent ordinances passed. Such person shall see to the immediate insertion of new or replacement pages when such are delivered or made available to such person through the office of the Village Clerk. Said Code books, while in actual possession of officials and other interested persons, shall be and remain the property of the Village and shall be returned to the office of the Village Clerk when directed so to do by order of the Board of Trustees.
