In addition to the codification of existing ordinances, the Code of Ordinances will contain substantive amendments to the Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations. All prior ordinances, pertaining to the subjects treated in the Code of Ordinances, shall be deemed repealed from and after the effective date of the ordinance adopting the Code of Ordinances, except as they are included and re-ordained in whole or in part in the Code of Ordinances.

The official copy of this Code of Ordinances shall be marked and be kept in the office of the city clerk. The Code of Ordinances will be declared to be prima facie evidence of the law of the city, and will be received in evidence as provided by Minnesota Statutes by the courts of the State of Minnesota.
The ordinance adopting the Code of Ordinances, and the Code of Ordinances itself, shall take effect upon publication of the ordinance adopting the Code of Ordinances in the city’s official newspaper.
