Lincoln County Code

 

PREFACE

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.
