REVISED ORDINANCES 

OF SALT LAKE CITY. 



CHAPTER I. 

Section I. Repealing existing ordinances. The ordin- 
ances contained in this chapter and the chapters following 
shall be known as the "Revised Ordinances of Salt Lake City," 
and so far as their provisions are the same in effect as those 
of previously existing ordinances, they shall be construed as 
continuations thereof; but, subject to the above limitation 
and the provisions of the next section, all ordinances and 
resolutions of the city heretofore in force, except such as are 
of a private, local or temporary nature, including franchise 
grants, dedications and special levies for local assessments, are 
hereby repealed. 

2. Accrued rights. Neither these revised ordinances 
nor the above repealing section shall affect any act done, any 
right accrued, any penalty incurred, any suit, prosecution or 
proceeding pending, or the tenure of office of any person hold- 
ing office, at the time when they take effect; nor shall the 
repeal of any ordinance thereby have the effect of reviving any 
ordinance theretofore repealed or superseded. 

3. Meaning of words. Words used in the revised or- 
dinances in the present tense include the future as well as the 
present; words use in the masculine gender include the fem- 
inine and neuter; the singular number includes the plural, 
and the plural the singular ; the word person includes firm and 
corporation as well as a natural person. 

4. Liability of employers and agents to penalty for 



2 CHAP. I. 

violation of ordinances. When the provisions of an ordin- 
ance prohibit the commission or omission of an act, not only 
the persons actually doing the prohibited thing, or omitting 
the directed act, but also the employer and all other persons 
concerned, or aiding or abetting therein, shall be guilty of 
the offense described, and liable to the penalty prescribed for 
the offense. 

5. Power to issue permits granted to certain officials 
by implication. When the provisions of any ordinance pro- 
hibit the commission of any act without the permit of a cer- 
tain official or officials, such official or officials shall have the 
power to grant a permit for the performance of such act. 

6. Meaning of the word "street." The word "street" 
or "streets" when used in an ordinance, shall be construed 
as including alleys, lanes, courts, public squares, public places 
and sidewalks, unless such construction would be inconsist- 
ent with the manifest intent of the ordinance. 

7. Penalty for violating ordinances. Any person vio- 
lating any provision or provisions of any ordinance includ- 
ed in these Revised Ordinances, or ordinances hereafter en- 
acted, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and unless 
other provision is made, shall, upon conviction, be punished 
by a fine of not more than one hundred and fifty dollars. 

8. When an ordinance shall go into effect. Amendments. 
All ordinances, enacted after the adoption of these "Revised 
Ordinances" shall be deposited in the office of the city recorder 
and shall not go into effect until twenty days after the date 
of their publication, unless otherwise expressly provided 
therein. These "Revised Ordinances" shall not be amended 
by interlineation, but, in the future, amendments shall be 
made by re-enacting the section or subdivision as amended.

ease or other disability. Any person violating any of the

notice from the city council, and within the time therein 
specified, provide a remedy satisfactory to said council; 
should the said company neglect or refuse to obey the direc- 
tions of such notice, the city council may, upon the expira-

ordinary travel thereon. 

556. Rights reserved to the city. The right of regu- 
lating the description of power to be used in the city in pro- 
pelling cars on and along railroads, and the speed of the 
same, together with the price of the license or tax to be paid 
therefor, shall not, by virtue of any grant or contract, be

delinquent taxes and deliver the same to the county treasurer, 
taking duplicate receipts therefor for each separate piece or 
parcel of property upon which the general taxes are thus paid. 
The city auditor shall thereupon deliver one of each such re- 
ceipts to the city treasurer and file and attach the other to the 
corresponding certificate of sale in his office. Upon receiving
