*******NOTICES & EVENTS*******

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

FOR TOWN OF SHELDON TO PROPOSE A LOCAL LAW TO CHANGE THE TOWN CLERK TERM OF OFFICE FROM 

TWO (2) YEARS FOR ONE TERM AND THEN BACK TO A FOUR (4) TERM THEREAFTER

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a public hearing will be held by the Town Board of the Town of Sheldon at 1380 Centerline Rd., Strykersville, NY 14145 on the 6th day of June 2018 commencing at 7:30 p.m. to give citizens the opportunity to consider a proposed local law.

The Town Board is considering a proposed local law which temporarily decreases the term of office for the clerk from four (4) years to two (2) years for one term only, and then returns the term of office for the clerk to a four (4) year term.

The purpose of this temporary change is to create a process more conducive to orderly business by offsetting when the Town Supervisor and Town Clerk begin their term of office so both positions do not get elected and changed on the same election cycles creating a large deficiency in knowledge.

Said local law is subject to a mandatory referendum and shall become effective upon filing in the office of the New York Secretary of State after approval by a majority of the electors voting thereon in the November 2018 general election.

ALL PERSONS INTERESTED IN THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS HEARING WILL BE ENTITLED TO BE HEARD AT THE TIME AND PLACE THEREOF

Copy of the proposed local law is also available for review at the Town Clerk’s Office during regular office hours.

Carol Zittel, Clerk

Town of Sheldon
