A. 
It is found and declared that § 3-300, Subdivision 2, of the Village Law provides a procedure whereby the office of Superintendent of Public Works of the Village of Scotia may be filled and occupied by a person other than a resident of the Village of Scotia if the Village of Scotia passes a local law to that effect.
B. 
It is further found and declared that the Village of Scotia has had a difficult time finding qualified interested persons within the boundaries of the Village of Scotia willing and able to serve as Superintendent of Public Works due to the increasing demands of time and the specific engineering and personnel expertise required in this position.
The Village Board of Trustees of the Village of Scotia hereby enacts a local law in accord with Village Law § 3-300, Subdivision 2, specifically declaring that the position of Superintendent of Public Works for the Village of Scotia may now be filled by a nonresident of the Village of Scotia, specifically by a resident of the Town of Glenville if said person is a resident of said town and not a resident of the Village of Scotia.
