   From and after the date of passage of this ordinance as provided and to the extent qualified by section 10 hereof, the city code of the city of Glenpool, Oklahoma, as compiled and codified under the authority of the city council (the city of Glenpool's governing body) and prepared pursuant to a certain codification services contract with Sterling Codifiers, Inc., dated as of December 12, 2009, containing the compilation of all ordinances of a general, permanent and continuing nature, together with such subsequent changes and amendments as may be made to said ordinances under the direction of the city council, is hereby approved, adopted and ordained to be the code of ordinances pertinent to all subjects and for all purposes set forth there in and shall be accepted in all courts and for all purposes without question as the official code and law of the city as duly enacted by the city council (the "2013 Glenpool city code"). The 2013 Glenpool city code, as hereby adopted, consists of titles 1 - 12, inclusive, and all ordinances of a general and permanent nature duly adopted up to and including ordinance no. 666, enacted December 3, 2012, and shall supersede all general and permanent ordinances of the city as have been or shall be adopted on or before September 1, 2013, except as otherwise provided herein. To the extent of any conflict between provisions of any ordinance adopted after ordinance no. 666, enacted December 3, 2012, and provisions of this 2013 Glenpool city code, the provisions of such ordinance(s) as may have been adopted during the interim between December 3, 2012, and September 1, 2013, shall control and shall be deemed to amend the 2013 Glenpool city code with respect to any such conflicting provisions.
Section 2.   Supplemental And Amending Ordinances.
   Pursuant to title 11 Oklahoma Statutes § 14-108(A), there is hereby adopted, as a method of perpetual codification, the loose-leaf type of binding together with the continuous supplementing service provided by Sterling Codifiers, Inc., whereby each newly adopted ordinance of a general and permanent nature supplementing, amending, altering, adding or deleting any provisions of the 2013 Glenpool city code, when such supplements, amendments, alterations, additions or deletions have been enacted after September 1, 2013, in such form as to indicate the intention of the city council to make the same a part of the 2013 Glenpool city code, shall be deemed to be incorporated into the 2013 Glenpool city code, shall be identified by Sterling Codifiers with the proper references and shall be inserted in the proper place in all designated official copies; provided further that all ordinances, expressly including those of a penal nature, shall be published and shall otherwise conform to the public notification and filing requirements set forth herein for the codification of the 2013 Glenpool city code as biennial supplements, thereby satisfying both the decennial recodification and biennial supplementation requirements title 11 Oklahoma Statutes § 14-109.
Section 3.   Exceptions.
   No ordinances enacted by the city council after ordinance no. 666, which was enacted on December 3, 2012, are included in the 2013 Glenpool city code as of the effective date of this ordinance no. 671. Notwithstanding such omission, all such ordinances shall continue in full force and effect from and after the date of adoption and until repealed or amended.
Section 4.   Ordinances Of General Nature In Continuance Of Previously Adopted Ordinances; Ordinances Of Special Nature Survive Adoption Of 2013 Glenpool City Code.
   All ordinances of a general, permanent and continuing nature affecting the public at-large of the city of Glenpool that are included in the 2013 Glenpool city code shall be considered as continuations of any corresponding previously adopted ordinance provisions and the fact that some provisions have been deliberately eliminated by the city council from the 2013 Glenpool city code as hereby adopted shall not cause any interruption in the continuous effectiveness of those ordinances that are included in the 2013 Glenpool city code. All ordinances of a special nature, to include without limitation but by way of example tax levy ordinances, bond ordinances, rights-of-way, budget ordinances, rezoning ordinances, franchises, vacating ordinances and annexation ordinances, are expressly excluded from the 2013 Glenpool city code but, regardless and independent of such exclusion, shall continue in full force and effect unless specifically repealed or amended by a provision of the 2013 Glenpool city code or by subsequent special ordinance. Such ordinances shall not be included in the official 2013 Glenpool city code.
Section 5.   Repeal.
   All ordinances of a general, permanent and continuing nature adopted on final passage by the city council on or before September 1, 2013, but not included in the 2013 Glenpool city code or expressly recognized and continued in force by reference in section 1 of this ordinance, are hereby repealed and shall be of no force or effect unless duly adopted upon reconsideration of all or any part by the city council.
Section 6.   Unlawful Alteration.
   It shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation to change or amend by additions or deletions, any part or portion of the 2013 Glenpool city code, or to insert or delete any pages or portions thereof, or to alter or tamper in any way with any ordinance therein in such a manner as would cause the law of the city to be altered or misrepresented thereby.
