I own a small trailer park in upstate ny, I bought a trailer

I own a small trailer park in upstate ny, I bought a trailer had it moved there and now the town enforcement officer says he can't give me the occupancy permit because I didn't follow code. Before I moved the trailer there I looked up the code online on the towns website, I was told the web site hasn't been updated yet, so I went to the town building to pick up a code book, however they haven't been updated either. Do I need to follow this new code when they don't have anything available to the public saying this is code? How do I fight this?

However they did blatantly admit to the false advertising, which I have in writing. I did not say I am licensed or anything of that nature.
