    If someone can please tell me which one has supersedence over the other.

    City Municipal Code Ordinance

    California Food and Agricultural Code

    (MRL)MOBILEHOME RESIDENCY LAW

    A state law would always trump a municipal ordinance.

    .... but it is quite possible that they are both valid.

    In many circumstances the state code will allows for a local ordinance to take priority. The state law is a default in the event there is no local control.
