(a)    Severability.  If any section, subsection, subdivision, paragraph, subparagraph, clause, sentence, or phrase of this article shall be declared invalid for any reason whatever, such decision shall not affect the remaining portions of this article, which shall remain in full force and effect. The provisions of this article are hereby declared to be severable.
   (b)    Liability. The granting of a permit or approval of a subdivision or development plan in an identified special flood hazard area shall not constitute a representation, guarantee, or warranty of any kind by the City or by any official or employee thereof of the practicability or safety of the proposed use, or the compliance with any laws, rules, regulations, and ordinances, and shall create no liability upon the City, including its officials and employees. This article does not create a private cause of action against the City, including its officials and employees. All applicants proposing construction in or near a floodplain area are urged to locate construction as far away from, and as high above, all flooding sources as possible.
