BILL NUMBER:S7483

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the town law and the public officers law, in relation to
authorizing the comptroller in the town of Hyde Park, county of
Dutchess, to reside outside such town

PURPOSE:
To amend the town law and the public officers law, in relation to
authorizing the comptroller in the town of Hyde Park, county of
Dutchess, to reside outside such town.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 amends Section 23 of the town law to provide that the person
performing the function of comptroller in the town of Hyde Park need
not be a resident of the town.

Section 2 amends Section 3 of the public officers law to provide that
the town comptroller of the town of Hyde Park need not be a resident
of the town, provided that such person resides in the county in which
such town is located or an adjoining county within the state of New
York.

Section 3 sets forth an effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
The position of town comptroller requires a set of unique skills and
specialized experience. As a result, it has been difficult for the
town of Hyde Park to recruit qualified individuals who maintain this
skill set within the jurisdictional boundaries.

This legislation would enable the town of Hyde Park to hire a town
comptroller who possesses the skills and experience necessary to
carry out the duties of this position. Allowing the town of Hyde Park
to choose a qualified individual from a broader pool of candidates,
without the limitation of a residency requirement, serves to benefit
the residents and taxpayers of Hyde Park.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
