TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public officers law, in relation to the office of city comptroller of the city of Salamanca

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Amends the public officers law to allow the city comptroller of the city of Salamanca to reside in the county in which the city of Salamanca is located.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends Section 3 of the public officers law by adding a new subdivision 11-a to exempt the city comptroller of the city of Salamanca from being a resident of such city, but the city comptroller of the city of Salamanca shall be required to reside in the county in which the city of Salamanca is located.

Section 2 provides that the effective date shall be immediately.

JUSTIFICATION: The City of Salamanca is requesting permission to expand its candidate pool for the Office of City Comptroller to include all residents of Cattaraugus County. The Comptroller is responsible for many unique responsibilities, many of which include working with the Seneca Nation of Indians on its annual lease payment, advising the Joint Leasing Commission, certification of the lease roll, the processes required for cancellation of tax bills upon immune status filing and many others.

The City of Salamanca has determined that the position requires knowledge, skills and abilities that are unique from those of other city comptrollers. The city is requesting the ability to hire a comptroller that resides in the County, but may not reside in the City of Salamanca.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
