[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Cornwall 4-9-1979. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Since it appears that many elected and appointed town officials and town employees hold full-time or part-time employment aside from their work for the Town of Cornwall and since the employers of these town officials and employees are or may be vendors to the town of goods or services, in order to avoid any appearance of impropriety and notwithstanding the provisions of § 103 of the General Municipal Law, in no case will a voucher for the purchase of goods and/or services from an employer of any elected or appointed town official or town employee be approved unless:
The purchase is bid either formally in accordance with § 103 of the General Municipal Law or informally with written quotes submitted as the Town Board shall determine; or
The Town Board shall by resolution authorize the purchase of goods or services without informal bid, which resolution must be adopted prior to the purchase. The Town Board shall not so authorize any purchase unless it determines the goods or services to be so unique that the employer of the town official or employee is the only source of supply for the goods or services, such as Central Hudson.
