[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Walworth 12-18-2003 by L.L. No. 5-2003. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Editor's Note: This local law was originally adopted as Ch. 114, but was redesignated to maintain the organizational structure of the Code.
This chapter is titled "A Local Law to Designate the Official Town Newspaper for the Town of Walworth."
This chapter is adopted pursuant to Municipal Home Rule Law § 10, Subdivision 1(ii)d(3), and shall supersede § 64, Subdivision 11, of the Town Law.
The Town Board of the Town of Walworth may designate as the Town's official newspaper any newspaper of general circulation in the Town without regard to the order of hierarchy set forth in Town Law § 64, Subdivision 11, providing that the newspaper meets the statutory definition of a "newspaper" as provided in General Construction Law § 60, Subdivision a, and Public Officers Law § 70-a.
All other local laws and ordinances of the Town of Walworth that are inconsistent with the provisions of this chapter are hereby repealed; provided, however, that such repeal shall only be to the extent of such inconsistency and in all other respects this chapter shall be in addition to such other local laws or ordinances regulating and governing the subject matter covered by this chapter.
If any clause, sentence, paragraph, word, section or part of this chapter shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unconstitutional, illegal or invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder thereof, but shall be confined in its operation of the clause, sentence, paragraph, word, section or part thereof directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment shall have been rendered.
This chapter shall take effect upon the filing thereof in the office of the Secretary of State of the State of New York, but shall take effect immediately upon a person personally served a copy after its adoption.
