Decoding Village Agendas – February 15, 2022
Work Session of the Village Board
1. Discussion regarding consolidation of the Village Justice Court.
The Board will discuss a suggestion of Manager Healy in his memo to the Board that it consider the consolidation of the Village Justice Court as a way of providing budgetary savings. This would result in the consolidation of the Village Court with the Town of Cortlandt Justice Court and also the abolishment of the position of Village Justice. This action can only be taken in a year when the Village Judge’s term ends. Village and Town officials have been in discussion on how a consolidation would work.
A local law would be required, subject to a permissive referendum. The Board will consider whether to move ahead with scheduling a Public Hearing on the proposed local law.
