That the provisions of this Ordinance, including all provisions of the Codified Ordinances, shall be in full force and effect from and immediately after passage of this Ordinance and its approval by the Mayor. All ordinances and resolutions or parts thereof enacted prior to January 1, 2005, which are inconsistent with any provision of the Codified Ordinances, are hereby repealed as of the effective date of this Ordinance, except as follows: the enactment of the Codified Ordinances shall not be construed to affect a right or liability accrued or incurred under any legislative provision prior to the effective date of such enactment, or an action or proceeding for the enforcement of such right or liability. Such enactment shall not be construed to relieve any person from punishment for an act committed in violation of any such legislative provision, nor to affect an indictment or prosecution therefor.
