AN ACT to authorize the city of Jamestown to establish an administrative
  tribunal for the adjudication of parking infractions; and to amend the

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

  Section  1.  The city of Jamestown, acting through its governing body,
is hereby authorized to establish an  administrative  tribunal  for  the
adjudication  of parking infractions, subject to the provisions of arti-
cle 2-B of the vehicle and  traffic  law.  Hearing  examiners  for  such
administrative adjudications in the city of Jamestown shall be appointed
by  the commissioner of motor vehicles in accordance with paragraph d of
subdivision 2 of section 236 of the vehicle and traffic law.
  S 2. Paragraph d of subdivision 2 of section 236 of  the  vehicle  and
traffic  law,  as amended by chapter 342 of the laws of 1981, is amended
to read as follows:
  d. The commissioner shall appoint hearing examiners who shall  preside
at hearings for the adjudication of charges of parking violations. Hear-
ing  examiners  shall  be  appointed  and shall serve for such number of
sessions as may be determined by  the  commissioner  and  shall  receive
therefor,  such  remuneration  as  may  be fixed. Such hearing examiners
shall not be considered employees of the city in which  the  administra-
tive  tribunal  has  been established. Every hearing examiner shall have
been admitted to the practice of law in this state for a  period  of  at
least five years, except in cities having a population of one million or
more  persons AND IN THE CITY OF JAMESTOWN, IN THE COUNTY OF CHAUTAUQUA,
where they shall have been admitted to such practice for a period of  at
least  three  years. Hearing examiners shall be appointed from a list of
eligible candidates who have satisfied the standards  established  by  a
duly constituted committee of the bar association of the county in which
the city is located or, the association of the bar of that city.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
