   AN ORDINANCE OF THE TOWN OF WRIGHT, WYOMING,
   ADOPTING THE TOWN CODE OF WRIGHT, WYOMING
BE IT ORDAINED BY THE TOWN COUNCIL OF THE TOWN OF WRIGHT, WYOMING THAT:
   Section 1: From and after the date of passage of this ordinance, the town code of the town of Wright, Wyoming, containing the compilation of all ordinances of a general nature together with the changes hereafter made to said ordinances, under the direction of the governing body of the town, shall be accepted in all courts and tribunals without question as the official code and law of the town as enacted by the mayor and town council.
   Section 2: There is hereby adopted, as a method of perpetual codification, the loose-leaf type of binding together with a continuous supplement service, whereby each newly adopted ordinance of a general and permanent nature amending, altering, adding or deleting provisions of the official town code is identified by the proper catchline and is inserted in the proper place in each of the official copies, one copy of which shall be maintained in the office of the town clerk, certified as to correctness and available for inspection at any and all times that said office is regularly open.
   Section 3: All ordinances of a general nature included in and compiled into this official town code shall be considered as a continuation of said ordinance provision and the fact that some provisions have been deliberately eliminated by the governing body shall not serve to cause any interruption in the continuous effectiveness of ordinances included in the official town code. Any citation written before or after the adoption of this ordinance which makes reference to an ordinance number rather than to the corresponding code section, shall be deemed to be a reference to the corresponding adopted code section, and shall not be subject to dismissal on that basis. All ordinances of a special nature, such as tax levy ordinances, bond ordinances, franchises, vacating ordinances and annexation ordinances shall continue in full force and effect unless specifically repealed or amended by a provision of the town code. Such ordinances are not intended to be included in the official town code.
   Section 4: It shall be unlawful, and punishable as a misdemeanor, for any person, firm, corporation, or any other entity to change or amend, by additions, deletions, or in any other manner, any part or portion of such code, or to insert or delete pages or portions thereof, or to alter or tamper with such code in any manner whatsoever, which could or does thereby cause the law of the town to be misrepresented.
   Section 5: All ordinances or parts of ordinances in conflict with the town code, are, to the extent of such conflict, hereby repealed. Provided, however, that in the event that any town code provision is later discovered to be clearly in conflict with the underlying town ordinance due to a typographical or other scrivener's error, such error in the town code shall be disregarded, and such town code provision shall instead be interpreted and understood as though such error was not printed in the town code, and that the provision from the underlying town ordinance had been correctly set forth in the town code. Furthermore, in the event that any town code provision makes reference to an incorrect source of statutory or other legal authority, such incorrect reference shall be disregarded, and understood instead to be a reference to the correct statutory or other legal authority for such town code provision.
   Section 6: This ordinance and the town code adopted hereby shall be in full force and effect from and after the date of its passage.
