“If any part of this ordinance shall be deemed or held invalid under the law, such part is hereby deemed severable and the invalidity of any part of this ordinance shall not affect the remaining party thereof.

“This ordinance shall be in full force and effect upon its date of passage and adoption, until such time as it may be repealed or amended by ordinance, and subject to any requirements for publication after passage or other requirement under the law.”
