ordinances and administrative law.
A new charter shall entirely supersede the prior charter of a

adopted by the governing body or administrative agencies of a city
which are in conflict with or are inconsistent with a new charter

the new charter, unless sooner modified or repealed by competent
authority; but at the end of this period shall, to the extent of
such conflict or inconsistency, be of no further force or effect.
