[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Mamaroneck 4-12-1982 as L.L. No. 7-1982, effective 4-19-1982. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Board of Trustees of the Village of Mamaroneck finds that the productivity, creativity and efficiency of village employees will be advanced by the creation of a mechanism for merit review and award for village employees. It is further found that private employers often reward exceptional service with a commendation, bonus, time off or other appropriate incentive, and the village desires to provide such individual incentive and recognition for exceptional service as provided and allowed by law.
There is hereby created a Merit Award Board within the Village of Mamaroneck. The Board shall consist of five (5) members, being the Mayor and the members of the Board of Trustees. Said members shall serve while they hold elective office in the village, and their terms shall be concurrent with the terms of their elective offices.
Said Board shall have the authority to appoint such additional member or members as it shall deem appropriate. Members of the Board who do not hold elective office in the village shall serve for terms of two (2) years.
The Merit Award Board, once established, shall make and adopt rules and regulations to provide for the rewarding of employees of the Village of Mamaroneck for exceptional and distinguished service to the community.
