No ordinance or resolution or any section thereof, shall be revised or amended unless the new ordinance or resolution contains the entire ordinance, resolution or section or subsection as revised or amended, and the ordinance, resolution or section or subsection so amended shall be repealed. This requirement shall not prevent the amendment of an ordinance or resolution by the addition of a new section, sections, subsection or subsections and in such case the full text of the former ordinance or resolution need not be set forth. This requirement shall not prevent repeals by implication by the subsequent enactment of an inconsistent provision.
Except in the case of a codification or recodification or ordinances and resolutions, a separate vote shall be taken on each ordinance or resolution proposed to be amended.
