This resolution shall take effect immediately upon adoption of this resolution.
A copy of the Code in loose-leaf form has been filed in the office of the Secretary of the Sewerage Authority and shall remain there for use and examination by the public until final action is taken on this resolution; and, if this resolution shall be adopted, such copy shall be certified to by the Secretary of the Delanco Sewerage Authority by impressing thereon the Seal of the Authority, as provided by law, and such certified copy shall remain on file in the office of the Secretary, to be made available to persons desiring to examine the same during all times while said Code is in effect.
Any and all additions, amendments or supplements to the Code, when passed and adopted in such form as to indicate the intent of the governing body to make them a part thereof, shall be deemed to be incorporated into such Code so that reference to the "Code of the Delanco Sewerage Authority" shall be understood and intended to include such additions and amendments. Whenever such additions, amendments or supplements to the Code shall be adopted, they shall thereafter be printed and, as provided hereunder, inserted in the loose-leaf book containing said Code as amendments and supplements thereto.
It shall be the duty of the Secretary or someone authorized and directed by the Secretary to keep up-to-date the certified copy of the book containing the Code required to be filed in his or her office for the use of the public. All changes in said Code and all resolutions 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 resolutions are printed as supplements to said Code book, at which time such supplements shall be inserted therein.
Copies of the Code, or any chapter or portion of it, may be purchased from the Secretary, or an authorized agent of the Secretary, upon the payment of a fee to be set by the Sewerage Authority. The Secretary may also arrange for procedures for the periodic supplementation of the Code.
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 Delanco Sewerage Authority to be misrepresented thereby.

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.
Each section of this resolution 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.
All resolutions or parts of resolutions inconsistent with the provisions contained in the Code adopted by this resolution are hereby repealed; provided, however, that such repeal shall only be to the extent of such inconsistency, and any valid legislation of the Delanco Sewerage Authority which is not in conflict with the provisions of the Code shall be deemed to remain in full force and effect.
In compiling and preparing the resolutions for adoption and revision as part of the Code, certain grammatical changes and other minor changes were made in one or more of said resolutions.

In addition, the changes, amendments or revisions noted throughout the Code as "amended" or "added" by this resolution are hereby enacted, to become effective upon the effective date of this resolution.
