Section 1. Title.

This Local Law shall be known as “A Local Law to Change the Grievance Day for Assessments.”

Section 4. Grievance Day Established.

The Town of Amenia hereby adopts as the date for the meetings of the Board of Assessment Review (also known as “Grievance Day”) as the first Thursday following the fourth Tuesday of May and so many days thereafter as the Board of Assessment Review deems necessary to hear complaints in relation to assessments in the Town of Amenia.


Section 5. Inconsistency.

All other local laws and ordinances of the Town of Amenia that are inconsistent with the Provisions of this local law are hereby repealed; provided, however, that such repeal shall only be the extent of any such inconsistency and in all other respects this local law shall be in addition to such other local laws or ordinances regulating and governing the subject matter covered by this local law.


Section 6.        Severability.

If any clause, sentence, paragraph, subdivision, or part of this Local Law or the application thereof to any person, firm or corporation, or circumstance, shall be adjudicated by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unconstitutional, such order or judgment shall not affect, impair, or invalidate the remainder thereof, but shall be confined in its operation to the clause, sentence, paragraph, subdivision, or part of this Local Law or in its application to the person, individual, firm or corporation or circumstance, directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment or order shall be rendered.


Section 7.   Effective Date.

This Local Law shall be effective immediately upon its filing with the Secretary of State and with the state Board of Equalization and Assessment.
