[Adopted 6-18-2013 by L.L. No. 3-2013]
An article to establish the residency requirements for positions in the Special Police, Town Court Officer Attendants and Peace Officer designation in the Town of Parma.
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 Public Officers Law § 3 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 offices of positions in the Parma Special Police, Court Officer Attendant and Peace Officer designation for the Town of Parma.
The person(s) holding office for positions in the Special Police, Town Court Officer Attendants and Peace Officer designation for 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.
