[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Ellenville as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 2-14-2011 by L.L. No. 1-2011]
In the Village of Ellenville, in the County of Ulster the provisions of § 3 of the New York State Public Officers Law requiring a person to be a resident of the political subdivision or municipal corporation of the state for which he or she shall be chosen or within which his or her official functions are required to be exercised shall not prevent a person from holding the office of Treasurer or Court Clerk of the Village of Ellenville, provided that such person resides in the county in which such village is located or an adjoining county within the State of New York.
[Adopted 11-13-2013 by L.L. No. 2-2013]
The Board of Trustees finds that, due to the relatively small population of the Village of Ellenville, it is not always possible to fill certain appointive offices and nonjudicial positions in Village government requiring municipal, administrative or financial expertise with Village residents who are duly qualified to hold such positions. The Board further finds that it is authorized to appoint qualified residents of Ulster County outside of the Village to said offices pursuant to Sections 3 of the Village Law. The Board further finds that it is authorized under said Sections 3 and 10 of the Municipal Home Rule Law to expand such residency requirements to allow residents of Ulster County to be eligible for appointment to said offices.
Notwithstanding any other general or special law, no person shall be eligible to be appointed to or hold office of the Village Manager in the Village of Ellenville unless such person is a resident of Ulster County at the time of such appointment. A person shall be eligible to be appointed to or hold the nonjudicial position of Village Manager, provided such person is a resident of Ulster County at the time of such appointment.
This article shall take effect immediately upon filing with the Secretary of State of the State of New York and shall apply to all persons currently holding the positions of Village Manager as well as any persons hereafter appointed to fill such offices.
