[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Binghamton as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 4-14-2009 by L.L. No. 7-2009]
This article shall be known as "a local law to establish the residency requirements for the appointed office of Deputy Town Clerk."
This article is adopted pursuant to Municipal Home Rule Law § 10[ii][a] that grants to local governments the authority to enact local laws regarding the qualifications of local public officers. Furthermore, this article modifies and expands the residency requirements for a particular appointed public office in the Town of Binghamton, Broome County, namely, the Deputy Town Clerk.
This local law shall supersede Town Law § 23(1) in its application to the office of Deputy Town Clerk for the Town of Binghamton only as to residency, but in no way provides any appointed Deputy Town Clerk any other rights and specifically reserves to the Town Board and the Town Clerk the authority to terminate such appointment at any time for any or no reason.
The person holding the office of Deputy Town Clerk in the Town of Binghamton need not be a resident nor an elector of the Town of Binghamton; provided, however, that such person shall reside in the county in which such Town is located within the State of New York.
