[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Port Chester 12-5-2005 by L.L. No. 7-2005. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Court constables — See Ch. 22.
The Board of Trustees finds that, due to the relatively small population of the Village of Port Chester, it is not always possible to fill nonjudicial offices in the Justice Court with Village residents who are qualified to hold such offices. The Board further finds that it is authorized, under Municipal Home Rule Law § 10, to expand such residency requirements to allow residents outside the Village to be eligible for such offices and that such eligibility is appropriate when a qualified person who is a Village resident is unavailable.
Notwithstanding any other general or special law, a person shall be eligible to be appointed to or hold the nonjudicial positions assigned to the Justice Court, provided that such person is a resident of the Village or a resident of New York State at the time of appointment.
