The Town Board of the Town of Wilna, pursuant to the authority granted it under § 512 of the Real Property Tax Law and §§ 10 and 20 of the Municipal Home Rule Law, hereby enacts as follows.
The Town Board of the Town of Wilna has found that it is no longer necessary to have a specially scheduled Grievance Day and that the traditional Grievance Day in the Real Property Tax Law can be rescheduled. To accommodate this, it is necessary to move Grievance Day from the third Tuesday in May to the fourth Tuesday in May. It is the purpose of this article to accomplish the same.
Commencing with May 2013, the day for presentment of complaints to the Board of Assessment Review in the Town of Wilna and for hearings on such complaints shall begin on the fourth Tuesday of May for that year and each year thereafter in accordance with § 512 of the Real Property Tax Law.
If any part of this chapter shall be found to be void, voidable, or unenforceable for any reason whatsoever, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining section or provision of this chapter.
