BILL NUMBER:S6245A

TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to authorizing the village of Sands
Point in the county of Nassau to establish a second acting village
justice

PURPOSE:

In the event that the village of North Hills has two village justices
it may provide for an additional acting village justice or in the
event that Sands Point has one village justice, it may provide for two
acting village justices.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one authorizes that notwithstanding any inconsistent
provisions of any other general or special law, in the event the
incorporated village of Sands Point, county of Nassau, has two village
justices, it may by resolution or local law, subject to permissive
referendum, provide for an additional acting village justice or in the
event such village has one village justice, it may also by resolution
or local law, subject to permissive referendum, provide for two acting
village justices

Section two is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

The village of Sands Point is lacking the appropriate number. of
justices which has resulted in overburdening existing justices with
unworkable caseloads, delaying justice to residents who rely on the
courts to resolve their disputes. By authorizing the village to
provide for an additional acting village justice, it would ensure that
the village court has the capacity to fairly and efficiently
adjudicate cases.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
