A. 
In compiling and preparing the local laws, ordinances and resolutions of the Village of Montgomery for adoption and revision as part of the Code, certain grammatical changes and other minor nonsubstantive changes were made in one or more of said ordinances. It is the intention of the Board of Trustees that all such changes be adopted as part of the Code as if the ordinances so changed had been previously formally amended to read as such.
B. 
Certain changes and revisions of a substantive nature were made to various local laws, ordinances and resolutions included within the Code during the process of codification. These changes were made to bring the provisions into conformity with current practice and the desired policies of the Board of Trustees, and it is the intent of the Board that all such changes be adopted as part of the Code as if the local laws, ordinances and resolutions so changed had been previously formally amended to read as such. All such changes and revisions shall be deemed to be in effect as of the effective date of this local law. Such changes and revisions are cited within the historical statements of individual chapters by the phrase "...amended at time of adoption of Code..." and are as follows. (Chapter and section number references are to the local laws, ordinances and resolutions as they have been renumbered and appear in the Code.)[1]

The following was deleted: Subsection G of original Section 8 of Local Law No. 2-1979, adopted 1-2-1979.
A complete description of these changes is on file in the office of the Village Clerk.
If any clause, sentence, paragraph, section, Article or part of this local law or of any local law, ordinance or resolution cited in the table in § 1-1B hereof shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder thereof, but shall be confined in its operation to the clause, sentence, paragraph, section, Article or part thereof directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment shall have been rendered.
A copy of the Code in loose-leaf form has been filed in the office of the Clerk of the Village of Montgomery and shall remain there for use and examination by the public until final action is taken on this local law, and if this local law shall be adopted, such copy shall be certified to by the Clerk of the Village of Montgomery, and such certified copy shall remain on file in the office of said Clerk to be made available to persons desiring to examine the same during all times while the said Code is in effect. The enactment and application of this local law, 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.
Any and all additions, deletions, amendments or supplements to any of the local laws, ordinances and resolutions known collectively as the "Code of the Village of Montgomery" or any new local laws, ordinances or resolutions, when enacted or adopted in such form as to indicate the intention of the Board of Trustees to be a part thereof, shall be deemed to be incorporated into such Code so that reference to the Code 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 enacted or adopted, they shall thereafter be printed and, as provided hereunder, inserted in the loose-leaf book containing the said Code as amendments and supplements thereto. Nothing contained in this local law shall affect the status of any local law, ordinance or resolution contained herein and such local laws, ordinances and resolutions may be amended, deleted or changed from time to time as the Board of Trustees deems desirable.
It shall be the duty of the Village Clerk to keep up-to-date the certified copy of the book containing the Code of the Village of Montgomery required to be filed in the office of the Village Clerk for use by the public. All changes in said Code and all local laws, ordinances and resolutions adopted by the Board of Trustees subsequent to the enactment of this local law in such form as to indicate the intention of said Board to be a part of said Code shall, when finally enacted or adopted, be included therein by temporary attachment of copies of such changes or local laws, ordinances or resolutions until such changes or local laws, ordinances or resolutions are printed as supplements to said Code book, at which time such supplements shall be inserted therein.
Copies of the Code may be purchased from the Village Clerk of the Village of Montgomery upon the payment of a fee to be set by resolution of the Board of Trustees, which Board may also arrange by resolution for procedures for the periodic supplementation thereof.
Any person who, without authorization from the Village Clerk, changes or amends, by additions or deletions, any part or portion of the Code of the Village of Montgomery, or who alters or tampers with such Code in any manner whatsoever which will cause the legislation of the Village of Montgomery to be misrepresented thereby, or who violates any other provision of this local law shall be guilty of an offense and shall, upon conviction thereof, be subject to a fine of not more than $250 or imprisonment for a term of not more than 15 days, or both.
The provisions of this local law are hereby made Chapter 1 of the Code of the Village of Montgomery to be entitled "General Provisions, Article I, Adoption of Code," and the sections of this local law shall be numbered §§ 1-1 to 1-14 inclusive.
This local law shall take effect immediately upon filing with the Secretary of State of the State of New York.
