The Board of Trustees of the Village of New Hempstead hereby determines that it is in the best interests of the Village to have the widest possible latitude in the appointment of qualified persons to the offices of Village Clerk, Village Treasurer, Deputy Village Clerk and Deputy Village Treasurer. To that end, it is the purpose of this article to modify the Village Law restriction that such officers must be Village residents.

All other requirements and/or qualifications for the holding of such offices shall be as provided in state law.
