No local law shall be adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Highland Falls until a public hearing has been held thereon in its final form before such Board of Trustees not less than three nor more than 30 days after public notice has been given of the time and place of the holding of such public hearing. Such notice shall be given by the Village Clerk by causing the same to be published once in the official newspaper of the Village. Such notice shall contain the title of the proposed local law and a brief explanation thereof.
The Village Clerk shall cause to be printed or otherwise reproduce copies of such proposed local law and shall, not later than the day such notice is published, post one such copy, together with the notice of hearing, in a conspicuous place in the Clerk's office and shall also make copies of such proposed local law available at the Clerk's office for inspection by and distribution to any interested person during business hours.
The Village Clerk shall forthwith upon the adoption of a local law by the Board of Trustees post a copy thereof in a conspicuous place in the Clerk's office and shall, within 10 days after such adoption, cause the local law, or an abstract thereof describing the same in general terms, to be published in the official newspaper of the Village.
Proof of publication of the notice of public hearing required and proof of posting and publication required by this chapter as set forth herein shall be filed in the office of the Village Clerk.
