[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Chester 4-5-1966 by L.L. No. 1-1966. Amendments noted where applicable.]
No local law shall be adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Chester until a public hearing has been held thereon in its final form before such Town Board 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 Town Clerk by causing the same to be published once in the official newspaper of the Town. Such notice shall contain the title of the proposed local law and a brief explanatory statement thereof.
The Town Clerk shall cause to be printed or otherwise reproduced 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, on the signboard at his office and shall also make copies of such proposed local law available at his office for inspection by and distribution to any interested person during business hours.
The Town Clerk shall forthwith, upon the adoption of a local law by the Town Board, post a copy thereof on the signboard at his 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 Town.
Each local law shall be numbered consecutively, beginning with No. 1, for each calendar year. When a local law is finally adopted and certified copies thereof are required by § 27 of the Municipal Home Rule Law to be filed in the offices of the Town Clerk, the State Comptroller and the Secretary of State, the Town Clerk shall accordingly assign to such local law its appropriate number.
