SECTION 5.  AUTHENTICATION; LEGAL PUBLICATION; PUBLICATION IN BOOK FORM.
   Upon passage by City Council, each ordinance or resolution shall be authenticated by the signatures of the Mayor and the Clerk of Council and recorded in a book kept for that purpose. Except as otherwise provided herein, all ordinances or resolutions of a general and permanent nature, or providing for public improvement or assessing property, shall, upon passage, be promptly published one (1) time in a newspaper of general circulation in the City or electronically on the City’s website or other electronic media generally available to the public. Publication shall be by title only unless City Council directs the Clerk of Council to publish the entire text. The publication in book form of any codification, revision or rearrangement of ordinances or resolutions passed by City Council, if such book contains the certificate of the Mayor and the Clerk of Council of the correctness thereof, shall be deemed sufficient publication of the ordinance or resolution or the several ordinances and resolutions evident in any court for the purpose of proving the contents thereof. The Clerk of Council shall make the full text of all legislation adopted by City Council available to the public.
