   Upon adoption by the Town Board of Trustees, this Code is hereby declared to be and shall hereinafter constitute the official Code of the Town of Leyden. This Code of ordinances shall be known and cited as the LEYDEN TOWN CODE, and it is hereby published by authority of the Town Board and shall be kept up to date 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 Town Code by title in any legal documents. (1992 Code)
   The Town Code, as hereby presented in printed form, shall hereafter be received without further proof in all courts and in all administrative tribunals of this State as the ordinances of the Township of general and permanent effect, except the excluded ordinances enumerated in Section 1-2-1 of this Code. (1992 Code)
   Any ordinance amending the Town 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 Town 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 Town Code. Each such replacement page shall be properly identified and shall be inserted in each individual copy of the Town Code. (1992 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 Town 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 Town Board of Trustees. The Town Clerk shall see that the replacement pages are properly inserted in the official copies maintained in the office of the Clerk. Any person having in his custody an official copy of the Town Code shall make every effort to maintain said Code in an up to date and efficient manner. He shall see to the immediate insertion of new or replacement pages when such are delivered to him or made available to him through the office of the Town Clerk. Said Code books, while in actual possession of officials and other interested persons, shall be and remain the property of the Township and shall be returned to the office of the Clerk when directed so to do by order of the Town Board of Trustees.
