[Adopted 11-17-2015 by L.L. No. 1-2015]
An article to establish the residency requirements for the appointed offices of Deputy Town Clerk and Receiver of Taxes, Deputy Town Clerk, Clerk to the Town Justices and Office Clerk IV for the Court.
This article is adopted pursuant to Municipal Home Rule Law, § 10, Subdivision 1(ii)a(1), which 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 the 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 Deputy Town Clerk and Receiver of Taxes, Deputy Town Clerk, Clerk to the Town Justices and Office Clerk IV for the Court for the Town of Parma.
The persons holding the offices of Deputy Town Clerk and Receiver of Taxes, Deputy Town Clerk, Clerk to the Town Justices and Office Clerk IV for the Court in the Town of Parma need not be residents nor electors of the Town of Parma; provided, however, that such persons shall reside in Monroe County.
