The provisions of §§ 20 and 23 of the Town Law and § 3 of the Public Officers Law or any other provisional law requiring a person to be a resident of a political subdivision or a municipal corporation of the state for which he or she shall be chosen or within his or her official functions are required to be exercised are waived to the extent that such provision shall not prevent a person duly licensed as an attorney-at-law in the State of New York from holding office as Town Attorney, provided that said person is a resident of the County of Dutchess or maintains an office for the practice of law within the County of Dutchess and so long as all other qualifications contained in §§ 20 and 23 of the Town Law and § 3 of the Public Officers Law are satisfied by the appointee of such office.
