EDITOR'S NOTE
   The arrangement and numbering of the Codified Ordinances of Summit County 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 or resolution number originally assigned to it at that time.  Sections without histories indicate that the section contains new matter which was ordained by the Adopting Ordinance which enacts the individual Code.
   Cross references direct the user to subject matter reasonably related to material contained within a given chapter.
