Memo

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.
