BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. This act shall be known as "Templeton's Law".
  S 2. Subdivision 6 of section 209-cc of the general municipal  law  is
renumbered  subdivision  7  and  a new subdivision 6 is added to read as

WEB  PAGE  SHALL  PROVIDE,  FOR  EACH  BLOCK LISTED, A LINK TO A MAPPING
SERVICE SITE THAT  UTILIZES  GLOBAL  POSITIONING  SYSTEM  TECHNOLOGY  TO

CLERK SHALL POST ON SUCH WEB PAGE NOTIFICATIONS OF THE BLOCK  WHERE  THE
OWNER  RESIDES  WITH  A  CONVICTION FOR AN OFFENSE INVOLVING A DANGEROUS
DOG. POSTING SUCH NOTIFICATION ON THE WEB  PAGE  SHALL  NOT  PRECLUDE  A
CITY,  TOWN OR VILLAGE FROM USING ANY OTHER SPECIFIC INFORMATION SUCH AS
A RESIDENT'S NAME, ADDRESS, DOG'S NAME OR ANY OTHER ADDITIONAL MEANS  OF
NOTIFYING LOCAL RESIDENTS OF SUCH CONVICTIONS.
  (B) UPON THE DEATH OF A DANGEROUS DOG, THE OWNER OF SUCH DANGEROUS DOG
