[Adopted 6-17-2014 by L.L. No. 2-2014]
An article to establish the residency requirements for the appointed offices of Building and Development Coordinator, Building Inspector, Fire Marshal, and Code Enforcement Officer.
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 Building and Development Coordinator, Building Inspector, Fire Marshal, and Code Enforcement Officer for the Town of Parma.
The persons holding the offices of Building and Development Coordinator, Building Inspector, Fire Marshal, and/or Code Enforcement Officer 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 or adjoining counties.
