BILL NUMBER: S267

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the town law, the public officers law and the village
law, in relation to the residency requirement for certain part-time
employees


PURPOSE :
Provides that certain part-time village and town employees need not be
a resident of such village or town.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section one amends Section 23 of the Town Law to add a subdivision
giving the option to any town in the state that has a population of
less than 20,000 residents to appoint a person to perform the duties
of a part-time employee who is not an elector of such town.

Section two amends the Public Officers Law to add a subdivision
exempting any part-time employee from the requirement that the
individual reside in such town that has a population of less than
20,000 residents or any village that has a population of less than
10,000 provided that they reside within the county or an adjoining
county.

Section three amends the Village Law to add a subdivision giving the
option to any incorporated village that has a population of less than
10,000 residents, by resolution, the power to exempt any part-time
employee from the requirement that the individual reside in such
village, provided that they reside within the county or an adjoining
county.

Section four contains the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION :
This bill will allow towns and villages greater flexibility in hiring
part-time employees. This bill would permit towns and villages to hire
these positions from within a larger geographical area, so as to
employ the best qualified and talented people they can to serve town
residents. In addition, this is a way to promote the sharing of
services between municipalities.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
2008: S.1134 Local Government
2007: S.1134 Passed Senate
2005-06: S.733 3rd Reading
2004: S.6031 Local Government

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None. However, towns and villages could benefit from the savings which
result from sharing certain part-time employees.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect immediately.
