ORDINANCE NO.  1730
AN ORDINANCE TO APPROVE THE 1999 CODIFIED ORDINANCES AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY.
   WHEREAS, a determination has been made that the ordinances of the Municipality of a permanent and general nature should be recodified, and
   WHEREAS, Council has heretofore entered into a contract with the Walter H.  Drane Company to prepare and publish such recodification, and
   WHEREAS, the recodification of the Traffic and General Offenses Codes has previously been adopted by Ordinance 1687, and
   WHEREAS, the recodification of the remaining ordinances, together with the new matter to be adopted, the matters to be amended and those to be repealed are before the Council,
   NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE VILLAGE OF SHEFFIELD, STATE OF OHIO:
   Section 1.  That the ordinances of Sheffield Village, Ohio, of a general and permanent nature, as revised, recodified, rearranged and consolidated into component codes, titles, chapters and sections are hereby approved, adopted and enacted as the Codified Ordinances of Sheffield Village, Ohio, 1999.
   Section 2.  That the provisions of this Ordinance, including all provisions of the Codified Ordinances, shall be in full force and effect as provided in Section 5 of this Ordinance.  All ordinances and resolutions or parts thereof enacted prior to August 1, 1999, which are inconsistent with any provision of the Codified Ordinances, are hereby repealed as of the effective date of this Ordinance, except as follows: the enactment of the Codified Ordinances shall not be construed to affect a right or liability accrued or incurred under any legislative provisions prior to the effective date of such enactment, or an action or proceeding for the enforcement of such right or liability.  Such enactment shall not be construed to relieve any person from punishment for an act committed in violation of any such legislative provision, nor to affect an indictment or prosecution therefor.  For such purposes, any such legislative provision shall continue in full force notwithstanding its repeal for the purpose of revision and recodification.
   Section 3.  That each section of the Codified Ordinances without an ordinance or resolution history at the end thereof indicates that the section contains new material which is hereby enacted by this adopting ordinance.  A summary of such new material shall be posted as provided by Ohio R.C. 731.23 and Section 121.01 of the Administrative Code.
   Section 4.  That it is found and determined that all formal actions of this Council concerning and relating to the adoption of this Ordinance were adopted in an open meeting of this Council, and that all deliberations of this Council that resulted in such formal action occurred in meetings open to the public, in compliance with legal requirements, including Section 121.22 of the Ohio Revised Code.
   Section 5.  That this Ordinance is hereby declared to be an emergency measure necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health, welfare, and safety of the Village and its inhabitants for the reason that there exists an imperative necessity for the earliest publication and distribution of the 1999 Codified Ordinances to the officials and residents of the Village, so as to facilitate administration, daily operation and avoid practical and legal entanglements.  Wherefore, this Ordinance shall be in full force and effect from and immediately after its passage and approval, and its contents shall become effective as set forth in this Ordinance.

   EDITOR'S NOTE
     The arrangement and numbering of the Codified Ordinances into component codes, titles, chapters and sections are based on an adaptation of the decimal numbering system which is similar to that used in the Ohio Revised Code, and in accord with the best accepted practice in instituting a codification.  Each section is self-identifying as to code, chapter and section number.  For example, 305.06 indicates that the code number is 3, the chapter number is 305 (or the 5th chapter within code 3), and the section number is .06.  The code and chapter numbers appear left of the decimal, with the code number preceding the first two digits left of the decimal, and the chapter number being all digits left of the decimal.  The section number appears right of the decimal.  As another example, 113.10 indicates the code number is 1, the chapter number is 113 (or the 13th chapter within code 1), and the section number is .10.
     This numbering system has the advantage of inherent flexibility in allowing for an almost endless amount of expansion.  Codes, titles and chapters initially are odd-numbered, thus reserving the use of even numbers for future legislation.  Sections within chapters are consecutively numbered, except that penalty provisions are usually assigned the number .99 as used in the Revised Code.  Newly created sections subsequent to the original codification may be indicated by three digits right of the decimal in the event the law properly belongs between two consecutively numbered sections.  For example, newly created 575.061, 575.062 and 575.063 follow 575.06 and precede 575.07 to be placed in their logical position.
     Section histories enable a user to trace the origin of the law contained in the section.  The history indicates the derivation by reference to either its passage date and the ordinance number originally assigned to it at that time, or to its inclusion in any prior code.  Sections without histories indicate that the section contains new matter which was ordained by the Adopting Ordinance which enacts the Codified Ordinances.
     The Comparative Section Table is included to show the disposition of every ordinance included in the Codified Ordinances.  It indicates whether a given ordinance was consolidated with another into one section or split into two or more sections.  Cross references direct the user to subject matter reasonably related to material contained within a given chapter.
