§ 35-1 Statutory authority. [1]

This article is adopted and enacted pursuant to the authority conferred by the New York State Municipal Home Rule Law, which enables local governments to adopt local laws relating to their property, affairs, or government, as long as the local laws are not inconsistent with the New York State Constitution or any general law of New York State. Specifically, this article is amending and revising § 3 of the New York State Public Officers Law, which requires every elected or appointed officer of the Town to be an elector of the Town; thereby, creating a Town residency requirement.
