§ 59-5Effect of increase in population.
This Article is adopted pursuant to the provisions of § 3-300, Subdivision 2, of the Village Law of the State of New York, authorizing the Village Board of Trustees to allow a person otherwise qualified who resides outside the Village of Blasdell to hold the office of Village Justice when the population of the Village of Blasdell is less than 3,000. Population figures are to be based on figures supplied by the United States Census Bureau.
It is hereby found that the population of the Village of Blasdell is less than 3,000.
No person shall be eligible to hold the office of Village Justice who is not a citizen of the United States; is not at least 21 years of age, except as may be otherwise provided by law; is not a resident of the Town of Hamburg, County of Erie; and if eligibility to or holding of such office is subject to regulation under the Civil Service Law or any other law, does not meet the requirements of such law or laws. Notwithstanding any other provisions of law to the contrary, the Board of Trustees of a village may provide, in lieu of any other residency requirement imposed by law, that any appointed village officer may reside within a town in which the village is wholly or partially situated.
In the event that census figures show the population of the Village of Blasdell exceeds 3,000, this Article shall be deemed of no further effect. If the Village Justice then currently in office resides outside the Village of Blasdell boundaries, that Justice will complete the term to which he or she has been elected.
