[HISTORY: Adopted Malone Village Board 8-9-1982 by Local Law No. 5, 1982. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Editor's Note: Section 1, Legislative intent, of this local law read as follows: "In the past some confusion has existed with respect to the local requirements for the adoption of a local law. This local law is intended to alleviate that confusion. These local requirements shall not eliminate any of the requirements established by the Village Law, the General Municipal Law or the Municipal Home Rule Law of the State of New York or any acts amendatory thereto or supplementary thereof."
No local law shall be adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Malone until a public hearing has been held thereon in its final form before such Board of Trustees not less than three nor more than 30 days after public notice has been given of the time and the place of the holding of such public hearing. Such notice shall be given by the Village Clerk by causing the same to be published once in the official newspaper of the village. Such notice shall contain the title of the proposed local law and a brief explanatory statement thereof.
The Board of Trustees, after closing the public hearing, may adopt the proposed local law in its original form or as amended at its next regular or special meeting. The Board of Trustees may also postpone adoption of the local law to a later date or dates. It shall not be necessary to hold subsequent public hearings as long as the proposed local law is adopted within one year from the date of the public hearing. Any proposed local law not adopted within one year from the date of the public hearing shall be deemed to have been defeated, but may be reintroduced at any time as a new proposed local law.
The Village Clerk shall cause to be printed or otherwise reproduced copies of such proposed local law and shall, not later than the day such notice is published in the official newspaper of the village, post one such copy, together with the notice of the hearing, in a conspicuous place in the Village Office. The Village Clerk shall also make copies of such proposed local law available at the Village Office for inspection by and distribution to any interested person during regular business hours.
Proof of publication of the notice of public hearing required by § 2-1 hereof shall be filed in the office of the Village Clerk.
The Village Clerk shall forthwith, upon the adoption of a local law by the Board of Trustees, post a copy thereof in a conspicuous place in the Village Clerk's Office and shall, within 10 days after such adoption, cause the local law or an abstract thereof describing the same in general terms to be published in the official newspaper of the village.
Proof of the posting of the copy of an adopted local law and the publication of the local law or an abstract thereof required by § 2-4 hereof shall be filed in the office of the Village Clerk.
Each local law shall be numbered consecutively, beginning with the number one, for each calendar year. When a local law has been finally adopted, certified copies thereof, as required by § 27 of the Municipal Home Rule Law of the State of New York, shall be filed in the offices of the Village Clerk of the Village of Malone, the Comptroller of the State of New York and the Secretary of State of the State of New York. The Village Clerk shall accordingly assign to such local law its appropriate number.
This local law shall take effect immediately.
