§ 1-15 Nonsubstantive changes in previously adopted legislation.

In compiling and preparing the legislation and 1973 Code for publication as the 2006 Code of the Town of Southold, no changes in the meaning or intent of such ordinances have been made. Certain grammatical changes and other minor nonsubstantive changes were made in one or more of said pieces of legislation. Chapters, articles and sections have been renumbered pursuant to the table in § 1-14, including all internal references and cross-references. It is the intention of the Town Board that all such changes be adopted as part of the Code as if the ordinances had been previously formally amended to read as such.

§ 1-16 Continuation of provisions.

A. 
The provisions of the Code, insofar as they are substantively the same as those of local laws, ordinances and resolutions in force immediately prior to the enactment of the Code by this local law, are intended as a continuation of such local laws, ordinances and resolutions and not as new enactments, and the effectiveness of such provisions shall date from the date of adoption of the prior local law, ordinance or resolution. All such provisions are hereby continued in full force and effect and are hereby reaffirmed as to their adoption by the Town Board of the Town of Southold, and it is the intention of said Board that each such provision contained within the Code is hereby reaffirmed as it appears in said Code.
B. 
For purposes of transition from the 1973 Code to this Code, any reference to a chapter or section number from the 1973 Code on or in any form, license, permit, ticket or other Town document shall be deemed to refer to the corresponding chapter or section in this Code until such form, license, permit, ticket or other Town document is revised or reprinted to refer to the numbering in this Code.

§ 1-17 Incorporation of provisions into Code.

The provisions of this local law are hereby made Article II of Chapter 1 of the Code of the Town of Southold, such local law to be entitled "General Provisions, Article II, Adoption of Renumbered 2006 Code," and the sections of this local law shall be numbered §§ 1-14 to 1-18, inclusive.

§ 1-18 When effective.

This local law shall take effect immediately upon filing with the Secretary of State of the State of New York.
