Sec. 3.11 Provisions as to Legislative Action
   A.   All legislative action by the Council shall be by ordinance or resolution introduced in written or printed form. An affirmative vote of at least a majority of the members of Council shall be required for the passage of every ordinance or resolution.
   B.   Every ordinance or resolution shall be read by number and title only at three (3) different meetings of Council unless five (5) members of Council vote to suspend this rule and read the first time by number and title only and to dispense with the second and the third readings. An ordinance or resolution shall be fully and distinctly read if requested by any member of Council.
   C.   No ordinance or resolution shall contain more than one general subject which shall be clearly expressed in its title. Any ordinance or resolution revising or amending previous legislation shall set forth the entire section or sections thereof so revised or amended, as revised or amended, and the original section, or sections, so revised or amended, shall be deemed repealed.
   D.   The Council may adopt standard codes prepared by public or private agencies on such matters as fire prevention, building construction, electric wiring, plumbing, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, and similar subjects by reference to the date and source of such codes without reproducing the same at length in the adopting ordinance. In case of such adoption, publication of the code at length shall not be required but there shall be at the time of adoption thereof and at all times thereafter on file for public inspection in the office of the Clerk of Council of the Municipality at least one copy of such code. The Clerk of Council shall make additional copies thereof available for sale to interested persons at such prices as may be established by Council.
   E.   Revisions, codifications or rearrangements of ordinances may be published in book form if so specified therein. If so revised, codified and rearranged under appropriate titles, chapters and sections, such revisions, codifications or rearrangements may be made in one ordinance comprising one or more subjects. The publication in book form as aforesaid with certification of the passage and adoption thereof by the Clerk of Council shall constitute sufficient publication of the ordinance or ordinances contained therein. The book so published and certified shall be received in evidence in any court, for the purpose of proving the ordinance or ordinances therein contained in the same manner and for the same purpose as the original book, ordinances, minutes or journal would be received. If a revision, codification or rearrangement of ordinances contains new matter not previously published, a notice of the enactment thereof, setting forth the titles of the ordinances and the titles of the chapters and sections containing such new matter, shall be published in the manner provided in Section 3.12 of this Article, which notice shall constitute a sufficient publication of such new matter. The Clerk of Council shall maintain a master copy which shall clearly indicate any changes of revisions of the Municipal Code made after publication of aforementioned book.
