    Description of Amendment
    10-26-2011 2011-392 Renumbers the sections of Ch. 10, Article XIX from 10-1001—10-1007 to 10-731—10-737
    2011-108 Changing the word "on" to "one" of Section 10-363
    2011-655 Renumbers the reference to "Section 26-48" in sections 2, 3 and 4 of said ordinance to "Section 28-46".
     2-22-2012 2011-1201 Section 2 of Ord. No. 2011-1201 replaced the term Article IV of Chapter 46 with the term "Section 46-191. The intent of this revision was to amend only Section 46-191, and not to replace the entirety of Article IV of Chapter 46 with the proposed amendments to Section 46-191.
    2011-1086 Former Section 3 was deleted, but the subsequent sections were not renumbered. This correction renumbers Sections 4 through 13 as Sections 3 through 12 and makes corresponding changes to citations to those sections.
    2011-1165 A subsection letter was accidentially skipped; this is corrected by redesignating subsections (k) through (o) of Section 32-301 of the City Code as subsections (j) through (n).
     4-19-2012 2011-1175 Said ordinance accidentally repealed subsection (g) from Section 26-157. Said memorandum adds back Section 26-157(g).
     9-12-2012 Section 2-263(a) is amended to update the references to State Law.
    Section 9-782(a)(3) is amended to correct the lettering of subitems so that there are no longer two subsections designated as "c.".
    Section 21-225 is amended to conform subsection (f) to changes in the Texas Health and Safety Code.
     7-17-2013 2013-248 Mistakenly add a line of text to Item "7 to Section 15-17."7. Said line of text deleted.
     1-23-2014 2013-455 Correct Sections 2 and 3 of said ordinance; intent of ordinance was to amend § 14-142, not § 14-140. If not corrected, the errors described above will lead to confusion, mislead the user of the Code and render the attempt to update Section 14-142 ineffective.
    2013-1081 Over the course of multiple drafts of the Wage Theft Ordinance, a new provision was inserted into Section 15-63 and numbered subsection (b), re-numbering the existing subsection (b) as subsection (c). Prior to such change, subsection (b) made a reference to "the preceding subsection" meaning subsection (a) of that section and the criteria listed therein. The insertion of the "new" subsection (b) made a reference in the current subsection (c) erroneous as it was always intended to refer to the criteria in subsection (a). Without the proposed correction, the reference to "preceding subsection" now in subsection (c) would be a reference to subsection (b), not subsection (a), as intended.
    2013-1163 Correct Section 2 of Ordinance No. 2013-1163, amending Chapter 28 of the Code to add a new Article XV relating to consumer protection and regulation of credit access businesses (Pay Day Loan Ordinance), by amending the last sentence of subsection (d) of Section 28-502 to read as follows: "An extension of consumer credit that provides for repayment in installments many not be refinanced or renewed." The error is a typo and the correction proposed above will ensure that the original intent of the ordinance is achieved in this regard.
     1-28-2015 2014-914 1. Amendments were to include a correction to item (5) of Section 46-331(b) intended to make the provision applicable to jitneys, rather than sightseeing or charter services. The amendment in Section 9 of the adopting ordinance was written incorrectly. The proposed change will preserve the intent of the Code as articulated above, and per the corresponding redline.
    2. Subsection (c) of Section 46-6 contains a typographical error. The first sentence of subsection (c) incorrectly identifies Section 1-10(a) as the Code provision that relates to vehicles for hire, rather than Section 1-10, because there are related provisions in both subsections (b) and (c). If the typographical error is not corrected, readers of the Code may be confused when they attempt to locate the information pertaining to certain requirements for vehicle for hire licenses, permits and certificate of registration. The proposed change will preserve the original intent of the Code by referencing the correct Code provision.
    10-15-2015 1. The definition of solid waste in Section 39-1 of the Code of Ordinances includes a reference to a definition in the Texas Administrative Code. The definition states that it includes "any other type of solid waste as defined in Section 330.2 of the Texas Administrative Code and any amendments thereto." The definition cited is now found in Texas Administrative Code Title 30, § 330.3.
    Also in Section 39-1, the definition of sponsorship agreement is out of alphabetical order, so it will be moved to the appropriate position.
    2. The definition of commission in Article XIII of Chapter 45 of the Code of Ordinances refers to the State Highway and Public Transportation Commission, which was renamed the Texas Transportation Commission in 1991.
    11-30-2015 2014-482 Section 1-9(a) was restored to its previous version.
    11-30-2015 2009-1049 Section 10-215(b)(4), the word "except" was inadvertently deleted, in addition, the brackets should have been removed from the word "at". Brackets removed and the word "except" inserted.
     1-12-2016 2015-1202 Removed the text "subitem b" from section 20-21.11(a)(3)b. During drafting, the substance of the highlighted text in subitem b. was moved to the paragraph below subitem d., but this was accidently retained.
     1-27-2016 2015-1103 Duplicate subsection (c) of section 9-334. Renumbered the second subsection (c) as subsection (d) and subsequent subsections renumbered.
     2- 3-2016 2015-1300 In December 2015, City Council passed Ord. No. 2015-1300, relating to civil service and employment. During drafting, the titles for Article II and Divisions 2 and 15 were accidentally deleted. Said titles have been inserted to read as they read before the passage of said ordinance.
     1- 5-2017 2015-1300 Section 14-183 was amended to delete a reserved subsection, but a reference in subsection (a)(12) was not changed to account for the deleted subsection. To correct the inaccurate reference and to delete certain extraneous words and punctuation § 14-183 was revised to read as set out.
