BILL NUMBER:S7388

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the village law, in relation to the
application of certain provisions of law relating to non-resident
members of the village of Blasdell volunteer fire department

PURPOSE: This bill allows the percentage of non-resident volunteer
members to exceed forty-five percent of the actual membership of the
village fire company of Blasdell, New York.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends subdivision 7 of section 10-1006
of the village law which forbids the percentage of non-resident volun-
teer members in village fire companies to exceed forty-five percent of
the actual membership of the fire company. The amendment exempts the
village of Blasdell, New York volunteer fire department from the
requirements of subdivision 7.

Section 2 states that this law shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently, village law forbids the percentage of nonresi-
dent volunteer members in village fire companies to exceed forty-five
percent of the actual membership of the fire company. This negatively
impacts village fire companies by making it more difficult to fill their
total membership and leaving fire companies with vacancies which could
be filled by the membership of non-resident volunteer firefighters. This
bill allows the percentage of non-resident volunteer members to exceed
forty-five percent of the actual membership of the village fire company.
This will help village fire companies obtain greater membership and keep
our communities safe.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
