AN ORDINANCE ADOPTING
THE TOWN OF CORTLAND, ILLINOIS MUNICIPAL CODE
Be it ordained by the President and Board of Trustees of the Town of Cortland, Illinois, as follows:
Section 1. From and after the date of passage of this ordinance, the Town Code of the Town of Cortland, Illinois prepared by Sterling Codifiers, Inc. containing the compilation of all ordinances of a general nature together with the changes made to said ordinances, under the direction of the governing body of the Town, shall be accepted in all courts without question as the official code and law of the Town as enacted by the President and Board of Trustees.
Section 2. There is hereby adopted, as a method of perpetual codification, the loose-leaf type of binding together with the continuous supplement service, whereby each newly adopted ordinance of a general and permanent nature amending, altering, adding or deleting provisions of the official Town Code is identified by the proper catchline and is inserted in the proper place in each of the official copies, one copy of which shall be maintained in the office of the Town Clerk, certified as to correctness and available for inspection at any and all times that said office is regularly open.
Section 3. All ordinances of a general nature included in this official Town Code shall be considered as a continuation of said ordinance provisions and the fact that some provisions have been deliberately eliminated by the governing body shall not serve to cause any interruption in the continuous effectiveness of ordinances included in said official Town Code. All ordinances of a special nature, such as tax levy ordinances, bond ordinances, franchises, vacating ordinances and annexation ordinances shall continue in full force and effect unless specifically repealed or amended by a provision of the Town Code. Such ordinances are not intended to be included in the official Town Code.
Section 4. It shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation to change or amend by additions or deletions, any part or portion of such Code, or to insert or delete pages or portions thereof, or to alter or tamper with such Code in any manner whatsoever which will cause the law of the Town to be misrepresented thereby.
Section 5. All ordinances or parts of ordinances in conflict herewith, are, to the extent of such conflict, hereby repealed.
Section 6. This ordinance and the Code adopted by the same shall be recorded and shall be in full force and effect from and after its passage, approval and publication in pamphlet form as provided by law.
