Sec. 17.13. Severability of Charter provisions.
If any provision, section, article, or clause of this Charter, or the application thereof to any person or circumstances, shall be found to be invalid by a court, such invalidity shall not affect any remaining portion or application of the Charter, which can be given effect without the invalid portion or application, provided such remaining portions are not determined by the court to be inoperable, and, to this end, this Charter is declared to be severable.
