BILL NUMBER:S3357

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the village law, in relation to including a high school member
on village boards of trustees

PURPOSE:
To permit a village to have an ex-officio non-voting student member of
its Board of Trustees

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill would amend Section 3-301 (1) (b) of the village law to
provide for an ex-officio nonvoting student member of the village
Board. The bill also adds a new section 3-305 to the Village Law
which provides that a village may, subject to permissive referendum,
appoint a local high school senior to a one year term.

JUSTIFICATION
The legislation is similar to legislation which allows students to be
non voting members of school boards. The appointment would be a
recognition by the community of its interest in student participation
in local government.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2010: S.5866/A.8940

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
