[Adopted 3-9-1993 by L.L. No. 2-1993]
This article is enacted pursuant to the authority of Chapter 959 of the Laws of 1958, effective October 1, 1959, as amended to March 18, 1984, an act in relation to the assessment and taxation of real property, constituting Chapter 50-a of the Consolidated Laws of the State of New York and as further amended under Real Property Tax Law § 512(1-a) effective January 2, 1993, authorizing towns to adopt a local law which amends or supersedes Real Property Tax Law § 512(1) to adopt a local law which permits the governing body of an assessing unit which employs an assessor who is at the same time employed by another assessing unit to adopt a local law establishing a date for meetings of the Board of Assessment Review other than that provided in Subdivision 1 of § 512 of the Real Property Tax Law.
In order to permit the sole Assessor of the Town of Clinton, who is employed by another assessing unit, to attend the hearing of complaints before the Town of Clinton Board of Assessment Review without conflict with the Assessor's obligation to attend said meetings to hear complaints before the Board of Assessment Review in another assessing unit by whom the Assessor is employed, it is deemed advantageous by the Town Board of the Town of Clinton to enact a local law superseding Real Property Tax Law § 512, Subdivision 1, to provide for an alternate date as authorized by Real Property Tax Law § 512, Subdivision 1-a, for the Town of Clinton Board of Assessment Review to meet and hear complaints in relation to assessments.
[Amended 6-11-1996 by L.L. No. 3-1996]
The Town of Clinton Board of Assessment Review shall from the date of enactment of this amended section and each year thereafter convene to hear complaints on the Wednesday following the fourth Tuesday of May and so many days thereafter as the Board of Assessment Review deems necessary to hear complaints in relation to real property assessments.
[Amended 6-11-1996 by L.L. No. 3-1996]
The time and place that the Board of Assessment Review of the Town of Clinton shall meet on the Wednesday following the fourth Tuesday of May of each year from the enactment of this amended section shall be publicly posted in a timely manner as authorized and provided by Real Property Tax Law of the State of New York.
See Real Property Tax Law § 512, Subdivision 1-a; effective January 2, 1993.
