Following the Rules

Trying to get back into blogging and thought we’d start this Monday off with an excerpt from a local Municipal Code…


The following grammatical rules shall apply in this code:

A. Gender. Any gender includes the masculine, feminine and neuter genders.

B. Singular and Plural. The singular number includes the plural and the plural includes the singular.

C. Tenses. Words used in the present tense include the past and the future tenses and vice-versa.

D. Use of Words and Phrases. Words and phrases used in this code and not specifically defined shall be construed according to the context and approved usage of the language. (Ord. 2236 § 8, 2000).
