The Lincoln County Code is a codification of the general and permanent ordinances, resolutions and commissioners orders of Lincoln County, Washington.
The ordinances, resolutions and commissioners orders were compiled, edited and indexed by the editorial staff of Book Publishing Company under the direction of Shelly Johnston, Clerk of the Board and has been kept current by Matthew Bender & Company Inc., its successor in interest.
This volume covers ordinances through Ordinance 05-01, passed January 18, 2005, resolutions through Resolution 05-87, passed December 5, 2005, and commissioners orders through Order 05-28, passed August 1, 2005.
The code is organized by subject matter under an expandable three-factor decimal numbering system which is designed to facilitate supplementation without disturbing the numbering of existing provisions. Each section number designates, in sequence, the numbers of the title, chapter, and section. Thus, Section 2.12.040 is Section .040, located in Chapter 2.12 of Title 2. In most instances, sections are numbered by tens (.010, .020, .030, etc.), leaving nine vacant positions between original sections to accommodate future provisions. Similarly, chapters and titles are numbered to provide for internal expansion.
In parentheses following each section is a legislative history identifying the specific sources for the provisions of that section. This legislative history is complemented by a resolution disposition table, a resolutions table and an orders table following the text of the code, listing by number all ordinances, resolutions and commissioners orders, their subjects, and where they appear in the codification.
A subject-matter index, with complete cross-referencing, locates specific code provisions by individual section numbers.
