A. All ordinances passed subsequent to this code which amend, repeal or in any way affect this code may be numbered in accordance with the numbering system of this code and printed for inclusion herein. When subsequent ordinances repeal any title, chapter, article, section or subsection or any portion thereof, such repealed portions may be excluded from this code by omission from reprinted pages. The subsequent ordinances as numbered and printed, or omitted in the case of repeal, shall be prima facie evidence of such subsequent ordinances until such time as this code and subsequent ordinances numbered or omitted are readopted as a new code of ordinances.

Amendments to any of the provisions of this code may be made by amending such provisions by specific reference to the section or subsection number of this code in substantially the following language: "That section of the Code of Ordinances, City of Dubuque, Iowa, is hereby amended to read as follows: ...". The new provisions shall then be set out in full as desired.
C. In the event a new section not heretofore existing in this code is to be added, the following language may be used: "That the Code of Ordinances, City of Dubuque, Iowa, is hereby amended by adding a section, to be numbered, which said section reads as follows: ...". The new section shall then be set out in full as desired. (2007 Code § 1-7)
