1.01.010 Code adopted.

Pursuant to RCW 35.21.500 through 35.21.570, the Roslyn Municipal Code, which consists of the ordinances of the city that have ongoing effect and which have not expired according to their own terms, is hereby adopted. [Ord. 1058 § 1, 2010.]

1.01.020 Title – Citation – Reference.

This code may be cited as the Roslyn Municipal Code or the RMC in any prosecution for the violation of any provision thereof or in any proceeding at law or equity. Any codes or regulations adopted by reference as part of the RMC may be cited by making reference to the original code or regulation followed by the term “adopted.” For example, a Kittitas County Code section may be cited as “KCC XX.XX.XXX, adopted” and a Revised Code of Washington section may be cited as “RCW XX.XX.XXX, adopted.” [Ord. 1058 § 2, 2010.]

1.01.030 Reference applies to amendments.

Whenever a reference is made to the Roslyn Municipal Code or to any portion thereof, that reference shall apply to all amendments, corrections and additions thereto adopted by the city council, regardless of whether such amendments, corrections and additions have been incorporated into the text of the Roslyn Municipal Code by means of codification. [Ord. 1058 § 3, 2010.]

1.01.040 Amendment.

This code may be amended by reference to code section without the necessity of referring to the underlying ordinance. If an ordinance amending this code is enacted with a numbering system that is inconsistent with the code numbering system, the city clerk is authorized to assign an appropriate code number and to codify the ordinance accordingly. The repeal of any code section does not revive the original text of the code section, but rather, repeal of an existing section repeals the underlying ordinance section and all of its amendments. [Ord. 1058 § 4, 2010.]

1.01.050 Reservation of prosecutions.

The adoption of this code shall not affect any prosecution for violations of the city ordinances codified herein that were committed prior to the effective date of the adoption of the code; nor shall the adoption of the code be construed as a waiver of any license, fee, or penalty due and owing at the effective date of the code adoption; nor shall adoption affect the validity of any bond or cash deposited with the city pursuant to the terms of any ordinance codified herein; but rather, all rights and obligations pertaining under ordinances in effect prior to codification shall remain in full force and effect. [Ord. 1058 § 5, 2010.]
