[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Asharoken as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 9-11-2000 by L.L. No. 3-2000]
Inasmuch as Public Officers Law § 3, Subdivision 1, when read in conjunction with Public Officers Law § 3, Subdivision 8, assumes that Village Justice Court Clerks are officers of the village in which they are appointed and thus requires that the Village Justice Court Clerk must be a resident of the village in which he or she serves; and inasmuch as Village Law § 3-300, Subdivision 2(a) allows the Board of Trustees of a village to provide that a village officer may reside within the county in which the village is situated, the Board of Trustees of the Village of Asharoken wishes to exercise its prerogative under Village Law § 3-300, Subdivision 2(a) with regard to the position of Village Justice Court Clerk.
This article shall regulate the residency requirements for the Village Justice Clerk of the Village of Asharoken.
The Village Justice Clerk of the Village of Asharoken must reside within the County of Suffolk.
