[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Baxter Estates by L.L. No. 6-2003. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Board of Trustees of the Village of Baxter Estates desires to promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the Village, by providing an efficient and effective means of enforcing compliance with statutes, local laws, ordinances, rules and regulations relating to parking, fire prevention and safety, health, sanitation, building, zoning and planning in the Village. To that end, the Village recently created the offices of Village Justice and Acting Village Justice, and now desires to implement the powers granted to the Village in Municipal Home Rule Law § 10(4)(a), by which the Village may authorize its enforcement personnel to issue appearance tickets for any offenses which violate statutes, local laws, ordinances, rules and regulations relating to parking, fire prevention and safety, health, sanitation, building, zoning and planning in the Village.
[Amended 3-7-2019 by L.L. No. 1-2019]
The Village finds that the grant of clear authority to issue appearance tickets to the Village Superintendent of Buildings and certain other personnel will facilitate the efficient and effective enforcement by the Village of the statutes, local laws, ordinances, rules and regulations described above, which will inure to the benefit of the Village and all of its residents.
