[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Ithaca 4-12-1999 by L.L. No. 5-1999. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Town of Ithaca wishes to obtain and retain the services of qualified, capable persons, some of whom may reside outside the Town limits. The Town Board of the Town of Ithaca does not deem it necessary for certain officers of the Town to be residents of the Town. Accordingly, this chapter is intended to permit the appointment to most positions in the Town of persons who may not necessarily be residents or electors of the Town of Ithaca.
This chapter is adopted pursuant to the authority contained in § 10, 1(i), and, to the extent this chapter supersedes the Town Law, § 10, 1(ii)d(3), of the Municipal Home Rule Law.
This chapter, to the extent inconsistent with same, shall supersede the provisions of § 23 of the Town Law and § 3 of the Public Officers Law, and any other provisions of the Town Law or Public Officers Law that are inconsistent with this chapter and which may be superseded by local laws enacted pursuant to the Municipal Home Rule Law sections cited above.
[Amended 3-12-2001 by L.L. No. 3-2001]
Notwithstanding the provisions of § 23 of the Town Law and § 3 of the Public Officers Law, all elective officers, all members of the Planning Board, Board of Appeals, and Assessment Review Board, the Superintendent of Highways, the Town Clerk, and the Deputy Supervisor shall be electors of the Town of Ithaca. All other Town officers need not be electors of the Town, provided that such persons reside in the State of New York.
