(a) 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.

For such purposes, any such legislative provision shall continue in full force notwithstanding its repeal for the purpose of revision and recodification.
(b) The repeal provided above shall not affect:
