No new ordi­nance shall be con­strued or held to repeal a for­mer ordi­nance, whether such for­mer ordi­nance is express­ly repealed or not, as to any offense commit­ted against such for­mer ordi­nance or as to any act done, any penal­ty, for­fei­ture or pun­ish­ment so incurred, or any right ac­crued or claim aris­ing under the for­mer ordi­nance, or in any way what­ev­er to affect any claim aris­ing under the for­mer ordi­nance or in any way what­ev­er to affect any such offense or act so com­mit­ted or so done, or any penal­ty, for­fei­ture or pun­ish­ment so incurred or any right accrued or claim aris­ing before the new ordi­nance takes effect, save only that the pro­ceed­ings there­after shall con­form to the ordi­nance in force at the time of such pro­ceed­ing, so far as prac­ti­ca­ble. If any penal­ty, for­fei­ture or pun­ish­ment be mit­i­gat­ed by any pro­vi­sion of a new ordi­nance, such pro­vi­sion may be, by the con­sent of the par­ty affect­ed, applied to any judg­ment announced after the new ordi­nance takes effect.

This Sec­tion shall extend to all repeals, either by express words or impli­ca­tion, whether the repeal is in the ordi­nance mak­ing any new pro­vi­sions upon the same sub­ject or in any oth­er ordi­nance.

Noth­ing con­tained in this Chap­ter shall be con­strued as abat­ing any action now pend­ing under or by virtue of any gen­er­al ordi­nance of the Coun­ty here­in repealed and the pro­vi­sions of all gen­er­al ordi­nances con­tained in this Code shall be deemed to be con­tin­u­ing pro­vi­sions and not a new enact­ment of the same provi­sion; nor shall this Chap­ter be deemed as dis­con­tin­u­ing, abat­ing, mod­i­fy­ing or alter­ing any penal­ty accrued or to accrue, or as affect­ing the lia­bil­i­ty of any per­son, firm or cor­po­ra­tion, or as waiv­ing any right of the Coun­ty under any ordi­nance or pro­vi­sion there­of in force at the time of the adop­tion of this Code.
