Pursuant to § 66.0103, Wis. Stats., the ordinances of the Village of Greendale of a general and permanent nature adopted by the Village Board of the Village of Greendale, as revised, codified and consolidated into chapters and sections by General Code, and consisting of Chapters 1 through 27, together with an Appendix, are hereby approved, adopted, ordained and enacted as the "Code of the Village of Greendale," hereinafter referred to as the "Code."

This ordinance and the Code shall supersede all other general and permanent ordinances enacted prior to the enactment of this Code, except such ordinances as are hereinafter expressly saved from repeal or continued in force.

§ AO-3 Continuation of existing provisions.

The provisions of the Code, insofar as they are substantively the same as those of the ordinances in force immediately prior to the enactment of the Code by this ordinance, are intended as a continuation of such ordinances and not as new enactments, and the effectiveness of such provisions shall date from the date of adoption of the prior ordinances.

§ AO-4 Copy of Code on file.

A copy of the Code has been filed in the office of the Village Clerk-Treasurer and shall remain there for use and examination by the public for at least two weeks, in accordance with § 66.0103, Wis. Stats., and until final action is taken on this ordinance, and, if this ordinance shall be adopted, such copy shall be certified to by the Village Clerk-Treasurer, and such certified copy shall remain on file in the office of said Village Clerk-Treasurer to be made available to persons desiring to examine the same during all times while said Code is in effect.

§ AO-5 Amendments to Code.

Any and all additions, deletions, amendments or supplements to the Code, when adopted in such form as to indicate the intention of the Village Board to make them a part thereof, shall be deemed to be incorporated into such Code so that reference to the "Code of the Village of Greendale" shall be understood and intended to include such additions, deletions, amendments or supplements. Whenever such additions, deletions, amendments or supplements to the Code shall be adopted, they shall thereafter be incorporated into said Code as amendments and supplements thereto.

§ AO-6 Publication; filing.

The Clerk-Treasurer of the Village of Greendale, pursuant to law, shall cause to be published, in the manner required by law, a copy of this Adoption Ordinance. Sufficient copies of the Code shall be maintained in the office of the Clerk-Treasurer for inspection by the public at all times during regular office hours. The enactment and publication of this ordinance, coupled with the availability of a copy of the Code for inspection by the public, shall be deemed, held and considered to be due and legal publication of all provisions of the Code for all purposes.

§ AO-7 Code to be kept up-to-date.

It shall be the duty of the Village Clerk-Treasurer, or someone authorized and directed by the Clerk-Treasurer, to keep up-to-date the certified copy of the Code required to be filed in the Clerk-Treasurer's office for use by the public. All changes in said Code and all ordinances adopted subsequent to the effective date of this codification which shall be adopted specifically as part of the Code shall, when finally adopted, be included therein by reference until such changes or new ordinances are supplemented into said Code.

§ AO-8 Sale of Code; supplementation.

Copies of the Code, or any chapter or portion of it, may be purchased from the Clerk-Treasurer or an authorized agent of the Clerk-Treasurer upon the payment of a fee to be set by the Village Board. The Clerk-Treasurer may also arrange for procedures for the periodic supplementation of the Code.

§ AO-9 Altering or tampering with Code; penalties for violation.

It shall be unlawful for anyone to improperly change or amend, by additions or deletions, any part or portion of the Code or to alter or tamper with such Code in any manner whatsoever which will cause the law of the Village of Greendale to be misrepresented thereby. Anyone violating this section or any part of this ordinance shall be subject, upon conviction, to a penalty as provided in § 25.04 of the Code.

Each section of the Code and every part of each section is an independent section or part of a section, and the holding of any section or a part thereof to be unconstitutional, void or ineffective for any cause shall not be deemed to affect the validity or constitutionality of any other sections or parts thereof. If any provision of this Code or the application thereof to any person or circumstances is held invalid, the remainder of this Code and the application of such provision to other persons or circumstances shall not be affected thereby.

§ AO-11 Severability of ordinance provisions.

Each section of this ordinance is an independent section, and the holding of any section or part thereof to be unconstitutional, void or ineffective for any cause shall not be deemed to affect the validity or constitutionality of any other sections or parts thereof.
