BILL NUMBER:S7509

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to amend the public officers law, in relation to the office of
city comptroller of the city of Salamanca

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Amends the public officers law to allow the city comptroller of the city
of Salamanca to reside in the county in which the city of Salamanca is
located.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 amends Section 3 of the public officers law by adding a new
subdivision 11-a to exempt the city comptroller of the city of Salamanca
from being a resident of such city, but the city comptroller of the city
of Salamanca shall be required to reside in the county in which the city
of Salamanca is located.

Section 2 provides that the effective date shall be immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:
The City of Salamanca is requesting permission to expand its candidate
pool for the Office of City Comptroller to include all residents of
Cattaraugus County. The Comptroller is responsible for many unique
responsibilities, many of which include working with the Seneca Nation
of Indians on its annual lease payment, advising the Joint Leasing
Commission, certification of the lease roll, the processes required for
cancellation of tax bills upon immune status filing and many others.

The City of Salamanca has determined that the position requires know-
ledge, skills and abilities that are unique from those of other city
comptrollers. The city is requesting the ability to hire a comptroller
that resides in the County, but may not reside in the City of Salamanca.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
