The term of office for the Town Clerk, Town Superintendent of Highways and Town Tax Collector for the Town of Marcellus is currently two years. The Town Board of the Town of Marcellus has determined that it would be desirable to change the term of office for those three officers from two years to four years. The purpose of this article is to effect such change. Said change would be subject to a mandatory referendum. Therefore, an additional purpose of this article is to place on the November 2, 2010 general election ballot, a referendum item which allows the electors of the Town of Marcellus to decide if they wish to have the term of office of these three officers changed from two years to four years.
Pursuant to Municipal Home Rule Law § 10(1)(ii)(a)(1), towns are permitted to adopt local laws relating to the term of office of officers and employees.
The term of office of the Town Clerk, Town Superintendent of Highways and Town Tax Collector for the Town of Marcellus shall be four years. Such four-year term shall commence on the first day of January following the first biennial Town election after the effective date of this article. At the biennial Town election next following the effective date of this article, and every four years thereafter, the Town Clerk, Town Superintendent of Highways and Town Tax Collector in the Town of Marcellus shall be elected for a term of four years.
Pursuant to § 10(1)(ii)(a)(1) of Municipal Home Rule Law, this article shall supersede Town Law § 24 with respect to the term of office of the Town Clerk, Town Superintendent of Highways and the Town Tax Collector in the Town of Marcellus.
