Part I of this volume contains the local laws of the Incorporated Village of Tuckahoe, New York, as amended. Part II contains a revision and codification of the ordinances, resolutions and, since 1973, local laws of a general and permanent nature of the Incorporated Village of Tuckahoe, which were deemed appropriate to be included, followed by a comparative table setting out, in chronological sequence, the ordinances, local laws and resolutions included in said codification, and their disposition.
Part II is an entire new codification, and as expressed in the Adopting Ordinance, supersedes all ordinances and resolutions not included herein or expressly saved from repeal by the Adopting Ordinance. Special ordinances or resolutions, or those dealing with only a portion of the inhabitants of the Village, rather than all of them, or relating to special purposes, are not included herein. For a more specific enumeration of the type of ordinances or resolutions not included herein, see Section 3 of the Adopting Ordinance.
The ordinances and resolutions in Part II of this Code have been classified as to subject matter, edited, revised and in many instances rewritten. The source of the section is included in the history note in parentheses at the end thereof. The absence of such a note indicates that the section is new and was adopted for the first time with the adoption of this Code. As will be noted, the chapters have been arranged in alphabetical sequence, and the various sections within each chapter have been appropriately catchlined to facilitate usage. Attention is also invited to the footnotes which tie related sections of the Code together, and which also refer to relevant state laws.
New chapters may be included in this Code by the addition of a fraction after the chapter number, i.e., if the new material is to be included between Chapters 12 and 13, it will be designated as Chapter 121/2. Care should be taken that the alphabetical arrangement of chapters is maintained when including new chapters. New Articles and new divisions may be included in the same manner, that is, if the new Article is to be included between Articles II and III, it will be designated as Article II1/2. New Articles may, however, be placed at the end of the chapter embracing the subject, and new divisions may be placed at the end of an Article embracing the subject, in each case the next successive number being assigned to the new Article or division.
A special feature of this volume to which the attention of the user is particularly invited is the looseleaf system of binding and supplemental servicing for the Code. With this looseleaf system, this volume will be kept up-to-date periodically. Upon the final passage of amendatory legislation, it will be edited and the appropriate page or pages affected will be reprinted for insertion in the Code. The new or reprinted pages may be distributed to the holders of the Codes with instructions for the manner of inserting the new pages and deleting the obsolete pages. The index will be treated in the same manner. Each such subsequent amendment, when incorporated into this Code, may be cited as a part hereof as provided in Section 5 of the Adopting Ordinance.
The index has been prepared with the greatest of care, with each particular item placed under several headings. There are numerous cross references within the index which stand as guideposts to direct the user to the particular item in which he or she is interested.
The successful maintenance of this Code up-to-date at all times will depend largely upon the holder of the volume. As revised sheets are available, it will then become the responsibility of the holder to insert the pages according to the attached instructions. It is earnestly recommended by the publisher's staff that all such amendments be inserted immediately upon receipt to avoid misplacement and that all deleted pages be saved and filed for historical reference purposes.
Time and effort have not been spared in the preparation of this Code and the publishers are most grateful to Mr. Lionel A. Racine, Village Attorney, and other village officials for their supervision, cooperation and interest during the progress of the work on this Code.
This Code is presented for the use and benefit of the citizens of the Incorporated Village of Tuckahoe, New York.
