An Ordinance Adopting and Enacting a New Code for the City of Rock Island, Illinois; Establishing the Same Providing for the Repeal of Certain Ordinances Not Included Therein; Providing for the Manner of Amending and Supplementing Such Code; and Providing When Such Code and This Ordinance Shall Become Effective.
Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of Rock Island, Illinois:
Section 1. That the Code of Ordinances, consisting of Chapters 1 to 16, each inclusive, is hereby adopted and enacted as the "Code of Ordinances of the City of Rock Island, Illinois", which Code shall supersede all general and permanent ordinances of the City adopted on or before November 8, 1982, to the extent provided in section 2 hereof.
Section 2. That all provisions of such code shall be in full force and effect from and after November 1, 1984, and all ordinances of a general and permanent nature of the City, adopted on final passage on or before November 8, 1982, and not included in such Code or recognized and continued in force by reference therein, are hereby repealed from and after the effective date of such Code.
Section 3. That the repeal provided for in section 2 hereof shall not be construed to revive any ordinance or part thereof that has been repealed by a subsequent ordinance which is repealed by this ordinance. (Ord. 84-36, 8-27-1984)
Section 4. Unless another penalty is expressly provided, a violation of any provision of such Code, or any ordinance shall be punished by a fine of not less than five dollars ($5.00) and not more than five hundred dollars ($500.00), as provided in section 1-13 of such Code. Any fine imposed by this code which increases by the passage of time alone, shall not increase if, prior to the time the increase occurs pursuant to the terms of the ordinance, the alleged violator files a written request for review of the alleged violation with the appropriate agency. If, after the alleged violator exhausts his review rights, the violation has not been paid or rescinded, the violator shall have a like time to pay the fine as provided in the ordinance before the increase shall take effect.

Section 5. Any and all additions and amendments to such Code, when passed in such form as to indicate the intention of the Council to make the same a part of such Code, shall be deemed to be incorporated in such Code, so that reference to such Code shall be understood and intended to include such additions and amendments.
Section 6. That in the case of the amendment of any section of such Code for which a penalty is not provided, the general penalty, as provided in section 4 of this ordinance and in section 1-13 of such Code shall apply to the section as amended, or in case such amendment contains provisions for which a penalty, other than the aforementioned general penalty, is provided in another section in the same chapter, the penalty so provided in such other section shall be held to relate to the section so amended, unless such penalty is specifically repealed therein.
Section 7. Any ordinance adopted after November 8, 1982, which amends or refers to ordinances which have been codified in such Code, shall be construed as if they amend or refer to like provisions of such Code.
Section 8. This ordinance and the Code adopted hereby, shall become effective November 1, 1984.
