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 Esopus, 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. Only such provisions of former local laws, ordinances and resolutions as are omitted from this Code shall be deemed repealed or abrogated by the provisions of § 1-4 below.

In compiling and preparing the local laws, ordinances and certain resolutions of the town for publication as the Code of the Town of Esopus, as distributed and designated in the table in § 1-2 hereof, no changes in the meaning or intent of such local laws, ordinances and resolutions have been made.
All local laws and ordinances of a general and permanent nature of the Town of Esopus, in force on the date of the adoption of this local law and not contained in such Code or recognized and continued in force by reference herein, are hereby repealed as of the effective date of this local law, except as hereinafter provided.
The repeal of local laws and ordinances provided for in § 1-4 of this local law shall not affect the following classes of local laws, ordinances, resolutions, rights and obligations, which are hereby expressly saved from repeal:
A. 
Any right or liability established, accrued or incurred under any legislative provision of the Town of Esopus prior to the effective date of this local law, or any action or proceeding brought for the enforcement of such right or liability.
B. 
An offense or act committed or done before the effective date of this local law in violation of any legislative provision of the Town of Esopus or any penalty, punishment or forfeiture which may result therefrom.
