BILL NUMBER:S6217

TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to village justices in the
incorporated village of North Hills, county of Nassau

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 North Hills 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 North Hills, county of Nassau, has two village
justices, it may also by resolution or local law, 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, provide for
two acting village justices

Section two is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

The village of North Hills 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.
