If any part or provision of this title or the application thereof to any person, property or circumstance is adjudged invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction, such judgment shall be confined in its operation and direction to the part, provision, section or application directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment shall have been rendered and shall not affect or impair the integrity or validity of the remainder of this title, or the application thereof, to other persons, property or circumstances. The city council hereby declares that it would have enacted the remainder of this title even without any such part, provision, section or application. (Ord. 1978-1, 3-8-1978, as amended)
