EDITOR'S NOTE

 

            The arrangement and numbering of the Codified Ordinances into component codes, chapters, articles and sections are based on an adoption of the decimal numbering system which is in accord with the best accepted practice in instituting a codification.  Each section is self-identifying as to code, article and section number.  For example, 305.06 indicates that the code number is 3, the article number is 305 (or the 5th article within code 3), and the section number is .06.  The code and article numbers appear left of the decimal, with the code number preceding the first two digits left of the decimal, and the article number being all digits left of the decimal.  The section number appears right of the decimal.  As another example, 113.10 indicates the code number is 1, the article number is 113 (or the 13th article within code 1), and the section number is.10.

 

            This numbering system has the advantage of inherent flexibility in allowing for an almost endless amount of expansion.  Codes, chapters, and articles initially are odd-numbered, thus reserving the use of even numbers for future legislation.  Sections within articles are consecutively numbered, except that penalty provisions are usually assigned the number .99.  Newly created sections subsequent to the original codification may be indicated by three digits right of the decimal in the event the law properly belongs between two consecutively numbered sections.  For example, newly created 575.061, 575.062 and 575.063 follow 575.06 and precede 575.07 to be placed in their logical position.

 

            Section histories enable a user to trace the origin of the law contained in the section.  The history indicates the derivation by reference to either its passage date and the ordinance number originally assigned to it at that time, or to its inclusion in any prior code.  Sections without histories indicate that the section contains new matter which was ordained by the Adopting Ordinance which enacts the Codified Ordinances.

 

            The Comparative Section Table is included to show the disposition of every ordinance included in the Codified Ordinances.  It indicates whether a given ordinance was consolidated with another into one section or split into two or more sections.  Cross references direct the user to subject matter reasonably related to material contained within a given article.

            The inhabitants of Marshall County in this State, now and hereafter residing within the boundaries prescribed in the next section hereof, or as hereafter established in the manner prescribed by law, shall continue to be a municipal body politic and corporate in perpetuity under the name "City of Glen Dale".

 

SECTION 2.   BOUNDARIES.

            The boundaries of said City shall be the same as those established for the Town of Glen Dale, by order of the Circuit Court of Marshall County, West Virginia, entered on February 7, 1924, together with any subsequent expansion or retraction of said boundaries.

 

SECTION 3.   POWERS.

            Except as limited by the Constitution and laws of the United States or West Virginia or restricted by this Charter, the City shall have and may exercise all powers, functions, rights, privileges and immunities of every name and nature whatsoever belonging or appertaining to municipal corporations or cities.

The enumeration of particular powers by this Charter shall not be deemed to be exclusive, and in addition to the powers enumerated therein or implied thereby, or appropriate to the exercise of such powers, it is intended that the City shall have and may exercise all powers which, under the constitution of this State, it would be competent for this Charter specifically to enumerate.

The signatures on the nominating petition need not all be subscribed to on paper, but to each separate paper there shall be attached a signed statement of the circulator thereof, stating the number of signers of such paper and that each signature appended thereto was made in his presence and is the genuine signature or mark of the person whose name it purports to be. With each signature including the signature of the circulator, shall be stated, the place of residence of the signed, giving the street and number or other descriptions sufficient to identify it.
