Editor's Note: Section 2 of this local law provided that to the extent that the subject matter of this local law is inconsistent with the provisions of Town Law § 20, Subdivision 3(b), the Town Board finds that the subject matter is appropriate for the exercise of its powers to amend and supersede provisions of the Town Law under Municipal Home Rule Law § 10, Subdivision 1(ii)d(3), and § 22, Subdivision 1. The Town Board finds that these matters are of particular local concern and fall within the legislative powers vested under the Municipal Home Rule Law § 10, Subdivision 1(ii)a(1), (2) and (3). To the extent that the aforesaid sections of the Town Law are deemed inconsistent with the subject of this local law, they are hereby superseded or amended.

There shall be no fixed term for this appointive position of Receiver of Taxes and Assessments of the Town of Fishkill, and the incumbent of that position serves at the pleasure of the Town Board.
B. 
The provisions of this section shall be effective as of January 1, 2001.
