Article I Town Attorney; Deputy Town Attorney
[Adopted 1-22-2002 by L.L. No. 1-2002]
The purpose of this article is to supersede § 23 of the Town Law and § 3(1) of the Public Officers Law to broaden the residency requirements for the Town Attorney and Deputy Town Attorney of the Town of Mamakating so to provide that an attorney who resides in the counties of Sullivan, Orange and Ulster of the State of New York is eligible to hold the position of Town Attorney and Deputy Town Attorney.
It is determined and ordained by the Town Board of the Town of Mamakating that it is in the best interest of the residents, taxpayers and inhabitants of the Town of Mamakating that the existing requirements contained in Town Law § 23 and Public Officers Law § 3, which require that the Town Attorney and Deputy Town Attorney of the Town of Mamakating be a resident of the Town, be dispensed with, and any Town Attorney and Deputy Town Attorney hereinafter appointed by the Town Board of the Town of Mamakating need not be a resident of the Town of Mamakating so long as such person resides in Sullivan, Orange or Ulster County, State of New York.
In all other respects, the requirements of Public Officers Law § 3 are applicable to the foregoing and shall remain in full force and effect.
