[Amended 2-11-1991 by L.L. No. 2-1991, effective 2-19-1991]
The administrative and executive powers of the Village, including the power of appointment of officers and employees, except the Village Clerk, the Village Attorney and Treasurer and, in the County of Westchester, officers and members of the Police Department, where such a department has been established pursuant to law, are vested in an official to be known as the "Village Manager," who shall be appointed by the Board of Trustees and shall hold office during the pleasure of such Board. He shall receive such compensation as shall be fixed by the Board of Trustees. Notwithstanding any other provisions of law, the Board of Trustees may also appoint the Village Manager to the office of Village Clerk, to serve in such office at the discretion of such Board. Superseding, to the extent necessary, the provisions of § 4-402 of the Village Law of the State of New York and § 5711-q of the Unconsolidated Laws of the State of New York, the administrative and executive powers of the Village shall include the power to supervise the Village Clerk, Village Treasurer and Chief of Police, each of whom shall report to the Village Manager, each of whom shall be subject to the direction and control of the Village Manager.
[Amended 9-11-2017 by L.L. No. 12-2017, effective 11-15-2017]
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board of Trustees of the Village of Mamaroneck may appoint a Village Manager for a term not exceeding four (4) years from the date of such appointment, provided that the person so appointed shall have served the Village of Mamaroneck prior to such appointment for twelve (12) or more months, in any period or periods, as Village Manager or discharged the duties of Village Manager during the absence or inability to serve of a regularly appointed Village Manager.
The Village of Mamaroneck acknowledges the requirement of state law that no person shall be eligible for appointment as Village Manager who is not a Village resident, and it further acknowledges the provision of state law which allows that the Board of Trustees of the Village of Mamaroneck may provide that its Village Manager may reside within the county in which the Village is situated. Accordingly, and in an effort to ensure that the most qualified person may be appointed as Village Manager, the Board of Trustees of the Village of Mamaroneck hereby provides that the Village Manager of the Village of Mamaroneck may reside anywhere within the County of Westchester.

The individual so designated pursuant to this section shall have all the administrative and executive powers as those of the Village Manager while such person is performing the duties of the Village Manager, but said person shall at no time receive any additional salary or other compensation for performing said duties, except in the case where such person shall be performing the duties of the Village Manager for a period of time in excess of three consecutive weeks, in which case additional salary or compensation may be paid for the entire time such person is performing such duties.
Notwithstanding anything contained herein or any other law to the contrary, the Board of Trustees shall establish, by local law, resolution or ordinance, such boards, commissions, councils or committees as it deems necessary and shall establish the composition, powers, duties and responsibilities of each and may, from time to time, amend the same. The Board of Trustees shall appoint the members of each such board, commission, council or committee. Any vacancy shall be filled by the Board of Trustees for the unexpired term.
