SECTION 2: All ordinances included in the newly codified City Code, which are not in conflict with prior City ordinances, shall be enforced as a continuation of the prior ordinance provision. The fact that some provisions may have been eliminated from the code shall not serve to cause any interruption in the continuous effectiveness of ordinances included in the newly codified City Code.

However, in accordance with Utah Code Annotated § 10-3-709, all prior conflicting ordinances which at the time of passage of this ordinance are the subject of a specific enforcement action shall continue in force after the revision, codification and compilation for the purpose of all rights acquired, fines, penalties and forfeitures and liabilities incurred and actions therefore.
SECTION 4: Inasmuch as certain City ordinances and resolutions of a special character are by their nature not intended to be included in the official City Code, the same shall continue in full force and effect unless specifically repealed or amended by a provision in the newly codified City Code. (Examples include tax levy ordinances, bond ordinances, annexation ordinances, etc.).
SECTION 5: Unless specifically authorized by the City Council, it shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation to change or amend by additions or deletions any portion of the newly codified City Code, or to insert or delete pages or portions thereof, or to alter or tamper with such Code in any manner whatsoever that causes the law of the City to be misrepresented thereby.
This ordinance shall take effect immediately upon its passage and posting as required by law.
