Editor's note: Ordinance No. 2021–30, effective on September 25, 2021, amending Code section 54–31, reflects the City Council’s determination that said code section, and this Charter section 3–3 must be read in harmony with Article VII, Section 10 and Article XII, Section 4 of the Colorado Constitution, replacing "felony" as it appears in this section with the constitutional list: "embezzlement of public money, bribery, perjury, solicitation of bribery or subornation of perjury."
