§ 31-11Supersession of state law.
§ 31-12Residency requirements.
This article may be known and shall be cited as "A Local Law to Establish the Residency Requirements for the Appointed Office of Town Constable."
This article is adopted pursuant to Municipal Home Rule Law § 10 [a] that grants to local governments the authority to enact local laws regarding the qualifications of local officers. Furthermore, this article recognizes that the State Legislature amended Public Officers Law § 3, adding a new Subdivision (24) expanding the residency requirements for any appointed public office in the Town of Greenburgh, Westchester County, thereby rendering Public Officers Law a special law with respect to any appointed Town officer. (See cf N.Y.Op Atty. Gen. (inf) No. 91-37.)
This article shall supersede Town Law § 23(1) in its application to the office of Town Constable in the Town of Holland.
The person holding the office of Town Constable in the Town of Holland need not be a resident nor an elector of the Town of Holland; provided, however, that such person shall reside in the Holland Central School District.
