   A.   Shall, in any manner affect the prosecution for violations of codes or ordinances, committed prior to the effective date hereof; nor
   B.   Shall the same be construed as a waiver of the requirement for any license or permit under such ordinances; nor
   C.   Shall the same be construed as affecting any of the provisions of such ordinances relating to the collection of any such license taxes or the penal provisions applicable to any violation thereof; nor
   D.   Shall the same be construed to affect the validity of any bond or cash deposit in lieu thereof, required to be posted, filed or deposited pursuant to any ordinance, and all rights and obligations thereunder appertaining shall continue in full force and effect.
