AN ACT to amend chapter 158 of the laws of 1988 relating  to  establish-
  ment  of  a  library district in the town of Hurley, Ulster county, in

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Paragraph (c) of subdivision 1 of section 2 of chapter  158
of  the laws of 1988, relating to establishment of a library district in
the town of Hurley, Ulster county, is amended to read as follows:
  (c) the election of [three]  trustees  as  hereinafter  provided.  The
trustees  of  the West Hurley library shall give notice of said election
by the publication of a notice in one or more newspapers having a gener-
al circulation in the district to be served. The  first  publication  of
such notice shall be not less than thirteen days and not more than twen-
ty  days  prior  to the date of such election. In addition, the board of
trustees of the West Hurley library shall cause copies of such notice to
be posted conspicuously in five public places in the district  at  least
thirteen  days  prior  to  the  date of such election. Such notice shall
specify the time when and the place where such election  will  be  held,
the issues to be decided at said election and the hours during which the
polls  will be open for receipt of ballots. The board of trustees of the
West Hurley library shall prepare the ballots for such elections and the
polls shall remain open for the receipt thereof at  all  elections  from
[seven] FOUR o'clock p.m. until [ten] EIGHT o'clock p.m., and such addi-
tional  consecutive  hours prior thereto as the board of trustees of the
West Hurley library may have determined  and  specified  in  the  notice
thereof.  The  board  of trustees shall designate a resident taxpayer of
such district to act as chairman of any election of  such  district  and
shall  designate not less than two nor more than four resident taxpayers
