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 § 1-2 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 of the Town of North Hempstead, in loose-leaf form, has been filed in the office of the Town Clerk 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 Town Clerk of the Town of North Hempstead by impressing thereon the seal of the Town of North Hempstead, and such certified copy shall remain on file in the office of said Town Clerk to be made available to persons desiring to examine the same during all times while the said Code is in effect.

Whenever such additions, deletions, amendments or supplements to the Code of the Town of North Hempstead 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.
It shall be the duty of the Town Clerk, or someone authorized and directed by the Town Clerk, to keep up-to-date the certified copy of the book containing the Code of the Town of North Hempstead required to be filed in the office of the Town Clerk for the use of the public. All changes in said Code and all local laws, ordinances and resolutions adopted by the Town Board subsequent to the enactment of this local law in such form as to indicate the intention of said Town Board to be a part of said Code shall, when finally enacted or adopted, be included therein by temporary attachment of a copy 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 supplements shall be inserted therein.
Copies of the Code book containing the Code of the Town of North Hempstead may be purchased from the Town Clerk of the Town of North Hempstead upon the payment of a fee to be set by resolution of the Town Board, which may also arrange by resolution for procedures for the periodic supplementation thereof.
