  • (a) All ordinances and resolutions passed subsequent to this Code which amend, repeal or in any way affect this Code may be numbered in accordance with the numbering system of this Code and printed for inclusion herein. In the case of repealed chapters, sections and subsections or any part thereof, by subsequent ordinances and resolutions, such repealed portions may be excluded from the Code by omission from reprinted pages affected thereby. The subsequent ordinances and resolutions as numbered and printed or omitted, in the case of repeal, shall be prima facie evidence of such subsequent ordinances and resolutions until such time that this Code and subsequent ordinances numbered or omitted are readopted anew by the board of commissioners.

    (b) Amendments to any of the provisions of this Code may be made by amending such provisions by specific reference to the section number of this Code in the following language: "That section ____________ of the Henry County Code, is hereby amended to read as follows: …." The new provisions may then be set out in full as desired.

    (c) In the event a new section not heretofore existing in the Code is to be added, the following language may be used: "That the Henry County Code, is hereby amended by adding a section (or article or chapter) to be numbered ____________, which said section reads as follows: …." The new section may then be set out in full as desired.

    All sections, articles, chapters or provisions desired to be repealed should be specifically repealed by section, article or chapter number, as the case may be.
