Prev Article 30. - ORDINANCES OF CITIESNext


12-3015."Compilation" and "codification" defined; ordinance books; loose-leaf supplements. The following terms shall have the meanings herein prescribed:

(a) "Compilation" includes the collecting, assembling and organizing of existing ordinances of the city and publication thereof in permanently bound or loose-leaf book form;

(b) "codification" includes the compilation and revision of the general ordinances of the city; the changing of sections deemed advisable; the omission of sections deemed unnecessary; the addition of new provisions; and the adoption of the whole by an adopting ordinance and publication in permanently bound or loose-leaf book form.

The codification may contain citations to sections of previous ordinances retained or modified. All titles, effective sections and signatures of ordinances may be omitted. The codification may contain annotations to statutes, cross-references and other matter that may make the code more useful. The codification may incorporate by reference standard or model codes or ordinances, state regulations and statutes as authorized by K.S.A. 12-3009, 12-3010, 12-3011 and 12-3012, and amendments thereto. The ordinance adopting the codification shall recite that the codification was authorized by ordinance, and that it was made in conformity with K.S.A. 12-3014 and 12-3015, and amendments thereto. When the ordinance and the codification, along with a certificate of the city clerk that the same are true and correct copies are published in book form, the codification shall take effect and shall import absolute verity and be received in evidence in all courts and places without further proof.

One copy of the published book shall be kept on file with the "ordinance books" and constitute an "ordinance book." A loose-leaf code of ordinances, published pursuant hereto may be kept current by the periodic preparation of loose-leaf supplements. Whenever any ordinance expresses the intent of the governing body that it may be made a part of such loose-leaf code and the same is thereafter included in a supplement to such code, such inclusion shall have the same force and effect as if the ordinance had been included in the original code at the time of its adoption by the governing body. The governing body shall make provision for furnishing insertions in loose-leaf compilations or codes to city personnel, purchasers, and others having copies of the original compilation or code.

At least three copies of the published book shall be kept on file in the office of the city clerk and kept available for inspection by the public at all reasonable business hours.
