Nothing in this Ordinance shall relieve any person, entity, including any City Department or City Official of compliance with other applicable Federal, State, or local laws or regulations, including Federal or State air and water quality requirements, and other requirements for protecting public health or the environment.
Undertaking For The General Welfare. In undertaking the implementation of this Ordinance, the City is assuming an undertaking only to promote the general welfare.
