Council may adopt standard ordinances and codes, prepared and promulgated by the State, or any department, board or other agency thereof, or any code prepared and promulgated by a public or private organization which publishes a model or standard code, including, but not limited to, codes and regulations pertaining to fire, fire hazards, fire prevention, plumbing, electricity, buildings, refrigeration machinery, piping, boilers, heating or air conditioning, by incorporation by reference.
The publication required by Sections 222.05 through 222.11 shall clearly identify such code, shall state the purpose of the code, shall state that a complete copy of such code is on file with the Clerk of Council for inspection by the public and also on file in the County Law Library and that such Clerk has copies available for distribution to the public at cost. If Council amends or deletes any provision of such code, the publication shall contain a brief summary of such deletion or amendment.
If the agency which originally promulgated or published the code thereafter amends such code, Council may adopt such amendment or change by incorporation by reference in an amending ordinance by the same procedure as required for the adoption of the original code, without the necessity of setting forth in full in the amending ordinance the provisions of the original ordinance or code.
