[Adopted 4-16-2013 by L.L. No. 2-2013]
An article to establish the residency requirements for the appointed office of Deputy Highway Superintendent.
This article is adopted pursuant to Municipal Home Rule Law § 10, Subdivision 1(ii)a(1), that grants to local governments the authority to enact local laws regarding the qualifications of local officers. This article recognizes that the State Legislature previously amended § 3 of the Public Officers Law, expanding the residency requirements for any appointed public office, thereby rendering Public Officers Law a special law with respect to any appointed town officer [see cf N.Y. Op. Atty. Gen. (Inf.) No. 2000 -5]
This article shall supersede Town Law § 23, Subdivision (1), in its application to the office of Deputy Highway Superintendent for the Town of Parma.
The person holding the office of Deputy Highway Superintendent in the Town of Parma need not be a resident nor an elector of the Town of Parma; provided, however, that such person shall reside in Monroe County.
