BILL NUMBER:S7633

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the town law and the public officers
law, in relation to the residency of the building inspector and code
enforcement officer of the town of Conklin, in the county of Broome

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 23 of town law is amended by
adding new subdivisions 28 and 62. These subdivisions waive the
requirements of Town Building Inspector and Code Enforcement Officer
to be electors of the town for which their official functions are
required to be exercised. Section 3 of the public officers law is
amended by adding subdivisions 28 and 62. These subdivisions deal with
residency qualifications for town officials. Under these new
provisions, the Town Building Inspector and the Code Enforcement
Officer are not required to reside in the town of which their official
functions are required to be exercised, provided that such persons
reside in the county which the town is located, or an adjacent county,
within the State of New York.

JUSTIFICATION: The benefits of this provision are two-fold. By
extending the realm from which interested persons can apply, the
qualified candidate pool expands. Although someone from an adjacent
town or county may be interested and best-qualified, without this
additional section, this person would be unable to apply. Allowing the
Town Building Inspector and Code Enforcement Officer to reside
out-of-town expands the possibilities for qualified persons to accept
the job without the necessity to relocate. If the candidates knew they
would be able to accept the job without having to relocate, they may
be more likely to apply. In this way, the candidate pool becomes more
competitive, and with a wider selection from which to choose, the best
person for the job can be chosen.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
