The Board of Trustees hereby finds and determines that the best interests of the Village of North Hills would be served by the creation of a Village Justice Court pursuant to Village Law § 3-301, having the powers and duties prescribed in the Uniform Justice Court Act, and that such interests would be furthered by the transfer to such Village Justice Court of all proceedings within its jurisdiction presently pending in the Nassau County District Court.
There is hereby established in the Village of North Hills the offices of Village Justice and Acting Village Justice. The Village Justice and Acting Village Justice shall receive such compensation as may be established from time to time by resolution of the Board of Trustees.
The Village Justice Court of the Village of North Hills shall have such jurisdiction as is permitted by the Uniform Justice Court Act of the State of New York.
No action or proceeding pending at the effective date of this chapter shall abate by virtue of this chapter, but such actions shall instead continue in the court in which they are then pending unless transferred to the Village Justice Court as provided by law.
