[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Fishkill as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 9-27-1994 by L.L. No. 8-1994]
Editor's Note: This local law also repealed former Ch. 51, Building Inspector, Fire Inspector and Comptroller Qualifications, adopted 1-19-1993 by L.L. No. 2-1993.
The following Town officers need not be electors of the Town of Fishkill: Town Comptroller, Building Inspector/Deputy, Fire Inspector, Deputy Town Clerk, Town Wetlands Inspector, Town Court Clerk/Deputy and Town Engineer. Said Town officers are required to reside within a twenty-five-mile radius of the Town Hall of the Town of Fishkill and shall have all other qualifications for holding office as provided in § 3 of the Public Officers Law.
This article in no way affects the necessity of Town of Fishkill residency for elected officials.
It is the intention of the Town Board of the Town of Fishkill to employ § 10 of the Municipal Home Rule Law to modify and supersede so much of § 23 of the Town Law and § 3 of the Public Officers Law as requires certain appointed officials to be electors of the Town of Fishkill and by this article to permit said appointed officials to be electors of Dutchess County or any contiguous county, so long as their residency falls within a twenty-five-mile radius of the Town Hall of the Town of Fishkill.
