BILL NUMBER:S3911

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the village law and the public
officers law, in relation to the residency of certain officers of the
village of Penn Yan, county of Yates

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To allow the village clerk -
treasurer of the village of Penn Yan, county of Yates, to live outside
of the village, but must live within the county or the adjacent
county.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill amends section
3-300 of the village law by adding a new subdivision 22 to allow the
board of trustees of the village of Penn Yan, county of Yates, by
resolution, to allow the office of village clerk-treasurer of the
village to be a non-resident of the village as long as they reside in
the County of Yates or in an adjoining county within the state of New
York.

Section 2 of the bill amends section 3 of the public officers law by
adding a new subdivision 60 which will not prevent a person from
holding the office of village clerk-treasurer of the village of Penn
Yan even though they are not a resident in the village, but does
require that person to reside in the county in which the village is
located or an adjoining county within NY State. The person performing
the function of village clerk - treasurer in any other village must be
a resident of that village, unless otherwise provided by an act of the
state legislature.

Section 3: effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: In order to improve hiring, and allow for greater
residency location, the legislation would allow for the village clerk
- treasurer of the village of Penn Yan, to reside outside of the
village, and still perform their official functions.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
