[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Mamaroneck 1-5-1994 by L.L. No. 1-1994. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Officers and employees — See Ch. 26.
The purpose of this chapter is to establish residency requirements for appointed Town officers and to supersede the requirements of Public Officers Law § 3 and any similar residency requirements contained in Town Law to the extent that such requirements pertain to residency of appointed Town officers. Public Officers Law § 3 provides that Town officers shall reside within the Town. This law has been substantially amended over the years to provide for exceptions for various municipalities and for all positions within those municipalities; it therefore no longer has general applicability. These amendments recognize that there is no longer the need to have qualified candidates for appointment to Town office reside within the geographic confines of the Town and that it is preferable to leave to the judgment of each municipal government whether a particular candidate's residence will interfere with that individuals ability to properly perform the functions of a particular position.
All appointed officers of the Town must reside within Westchester County or a county which adjoins Westchester County.
