A. 
The Board of Trustees of the Village of Mamaroneck, on November 13, 1974, declared an emergency pursuant to the Emergency Tenant Protection Act of 1974, hereinafter referred to as the "Act,"[1] providing for regulation of rents of all housing accommodations subject to regulation under the Act. Section 8 of the Act requires that the village pay the costs incurred by the State Division of Housing and Community Renewal in administering the rent regulations under the Act by making deposits in a revolving fund.

B. 
Section 8, Subdivision b, of the Act[2] authorizes the village to impose on the owners of every building containing housing accommodations subject to regulation under the Act an annual charge for each such accommodation in such amount as the village determines to be necessary for the expenses to be incurred in the administration of such regulation. The procedures for the determination and collection of the charge and provisions for penalties and liens necessary thereto are hereby established.

Editor's Note: See Unconsolidated Laws § 8628, Subdivision b.
The owner of every building containing housing accommodations subject to regulation pursuant to the Act shall pay to the Village of Mamaroneck an annual charge, as shall be determined by the Board of Trustees pursuant to § 312-3, for each such housing accommodation in a building owned by him for the period November 13, 1974, through the close of the current fiscal year of the state as to the first year, and, thereafter, on a fiscal year basis commencing May 1 and ending April 30 in each year. The status date as to ownership and as to housing accommodations subject to the Act to be used for determining liability for the annual charge shall be April 30 in each year.
The Village Manager shall annually report to the Board of Trustees the number and the owners of record of housing accommodations subject to regulation under the Act in the village as of April 30 and provide to the Board of Trustees an itemization of the expenses incurred by the village as a result of the administration of the regulation of residential rents pursuant to the Act. The Board of Trustees shall thereafter determine the amount of the annual charge to be imposed on each housing accommodation subject to regulation under the Act in the village.
A. 
The Assessor shall annually prepare a list of owners subject to the annual charge, which shall be a list of owners by name and address of buildings containing housing accommodations subject to the Act who are liable for the annual charge, identifying the address and tax lot reference of the premises and the number of units of housing accommodations at the premises subject to the Act.
B. 
After April 30 but prior to June 1, the Assessor shall file with the Village Clerk-Treasurer a certified copy of the list of owners subject to the annual charge.
C. 
The Clerk-Treasurer shall thereafter, following the determination by the Board of Trustees of the annual charge, compute the total charge to be paid by each owner subject to the annual charge and render bills on account on the annual charge as computed and mail the bills to each owner listed at the address shown on the list.
D. 
Failure to pay the bill by March 31 of the following year will result in certification to the Board, and the balance due will be levied in the same manner as is provided for the billing of village taxes.
E. 
The billing of the annual charge, whether or not done in conjunction with the billing of village taxes, shall include a request to each owner that the Clerk-Treasurer be advised as to any error in the number of units of regulated housing accommodations listed as belonging to that owner so that the owner's payment of the annual charge may be adjusted accordingly and paid as adjusted.
