[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Dobbs Ferry as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Village Administrator — See Ch. 4.
[Adopted 2-12-2002 by L.L. No. 2-2002]
The Board of Trustees finds that, due to the relatively small population of the Village of Dobbs Ferry, it is not always possible to fill certain appointive offices in Village government requiring municipal, administrative or financial expertise with Village residents who are duly qualified to hold such positions. The Board further finds that it is authorized to appoint qualified residents of Westchester County outside of the Village to said offices pursuant to § 3-300 of the Village Law. The Board further finds that it is authorized under said § 3-300 of the Village Law and § 10 of the Municipal Home Rule Law to expand such residency requirements to allow residents of Westchester County to be eligible for appointment to said offices and that such eligibility is appropriate when a qualified person who is a Village resident is unavailable.
Notwithstanding any other general or special law, no person shall be eligible to be appointed to or hold office of the Village Clerk, Deputy Clerk, Village Treasurer or Deputy Treasurer in the Village of Dobbs Ferry unless such person is a resident of the Village or a resident of Westchester County at the time of such appointment.
This article shall take effect immediately upon filing with the Secretary of the State of New York and shall apply to all persons currently holding the positions of Village Clerk, Deputy Clerk, Village Treasurer and Deputy Treasurer as well as any persons hereafter appointed to fill such offices.
