TOWN OF CRAWFORD

INTRODUCTORY LOCAL LAW

CONTINUATION OF FIRE DISTRICTS

 

 

            BE IT ENACTED by the Town Board of the Town of Crawford, County of Orange, State of New York, as follows:

 

            Section 1.        Legislative intent.  The report of the incorporation of a village with boundaries coterminous with the boundaries of the Town of Crawford was delivered to the Secretary of State on December 28, 2023.  Section 17-1720 of the state Village Law provides that a local law may be adopted providing that any fire district, fire protection district, fire alarm district or any district functioning pursuant to §186 of the state Town Law which is located wholly or partly within the boundaries of such village shall continue to function in all respects, and all officers and employees of such entity shall continue to hold their offices and exercise their powers and duties, as though such village were not incorporated.  That is the intent of this local law. 

 

            Section 2.        The Code of the Town of Crawford is amended by adding a new chapter, designated as Chapter 13 and titled “Continuation of Fire Districts,” to read as follows:

 

            §13-1.  The Pine Bush Fire District and Bullville Fire District shall continue to function, in all respects whatsoever, and all officers and employees of those fire districts shall continue to hold their offices and exercise their powers and duties, as though the village established pursuant to the state Village Law were not incorporated.

 

Section 3.        Severability.  If any part or provision of this local law or the application thereof to any person or circumstance be adjudged invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction, such judgment shall be confined in its operation to the part or provision or application directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment shall have been rendered and shall not affect or impair the validity of the remainder of this local law or the application thereof to other persons or circumstances, and the Town Board hereby declares that it would have enacted this local law or the remainder thereof had such invalid application or invalid provision been apparent.

 

Section 4.        Supersession.  The Town Board hereby declares its legislative intent to supercede any provision of the state Town Law and Village Law and any other provision of law that the Town may supercede pursuant to the Municipal Home Rule Law and the Constitution of the State of New York.  The courts are requested to take notice of this legislative intent and apply it in the event the Town Board has failed to specify any provision of law that may require supersession.  The Town Board hereby declares that it would have enacted this local law and superceded such inconsistent provision had it been apparent.

 

Section 5.        This local law shall take effect immediately upon filing with the Secretary of State.

TOWN OF CRAWFORD TOWN BOARD

RESOLUTION CONCERNING THE RELOCATION OF

MIGRANTS AND ASYLUM SEEKERS AND

AUTHORIZING COMMENCEMENT OF LEGAL ACTION

            WHEREAS, there is a national immigration crisis at the border between the United States and Mexico in that unprecedented and overwhelming numbers of migrants and asylum seekers are crossing over the border of the United States; and

            WHEREAS, the Federal government has failed or refused to anticipate and react to the exigent and emergent circumstances, resulting in thousands of migrants and asylum seekers crossing the U.S. border; and

            WHEREAS, the Mayor of New York City has failed to adequately address the needs of said migrants and asylum seekers transferred to or otherwise arrived in New York City, and has recently undertaken to relocate hundreds of migrants and asylum seekers to locations in the Hudson Valley and to use local hotels as shelters or dormitory facilities for housing them; and

            WHEREAS, the City of New York has not communicated any plan for supervising, processing, and/or providing services to the migrants and asylum seekers who are being transported to Hudson Valley hotels; and

            WHEREAS, the use of such hotels by the City of New York as migrant shelters or dormitory facilities is of unknown and indeterminate length, and may last for months or longer; and

            WHEREAS, the City of New York has not provided, nor offered to provide, any funds or assistance to the Hudson Valley communities where migrants and asylum seekers are being sent to defray the additional service costs those communities will incur due to the use of local hotels as shelters or dormitory facilities, such as costs related to police and fire protection, emergency services, medical facilities and other services and needs; and

            WHEREAS, the Town of Crawford lacks the facilities, services capacity, and funds to provide adequate shelter, assistance, and basic necessities to dependent migrants and asylum seekers  that the City of New York is transferring to the Hudson Valley; and

            WHEREAS, the Town of Crawford has enacted a zoning code to protect and preserve the health, safety, and welfare of the Town's residents and property owners; and

            WHEREAS, the Town's zoning code does not allow the use of hotels or other temporary residence facilities, including camps, for use as long-term residential housing such as shelters or dormitories; and

            WHEREAS, New York City's transportation of migrants and asylum seekers to the Town for that purpose is illegal; and

            WHEREAS, violation of the Town of Crawford Zoning Code is illegal activity which subjects the offender to both criminal prosecution and civil liability; and

            WHEREAS, migrants and asylum seekers could face refusal or eviction from such illegal hotels and short-term residential facilities by the owners thereof, resulting in homelessness for these migrants and asylum seekers.

            NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS RESOLVED, that the Town Board hereby authorizes the Town Supervisor, the Town Building Inspector, and the Town's attorneys to commence civil and/or criminal actions against any property owner and operator who illegally uses property as a shelter or dormitory facility.

            BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Town Board hereby authorizes the Town Supervisor and the Town's attorneys to commence a civil action against the City of New York in the event that it undertakes to illegally utilize hotels or other facilities in the Town of Crawford as illegal shelters or dormitory facilities.

            BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that a certified copy of this Resolution, along with a letter demanding action to put a stop to New York City's illegal transportation and housing of migrants and asylum seekers in the Hudson Valley, shall be sent to the Mayor of the City of New York, the Town's representatives in the New York State Legislature, and to Governor Kathy Hochul.

            BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that a certified copy of this Resolution shall be sent to every hotel and temporary residence facility in the Town of Crawford, along with a letter advising the hotel or other facility owners that use of their facilities as a shelter or dormitory facility is illegal and will subject them to criminal prosecution and civil liability.

            On the motion of Council Member Michael Menendez seconded by Council Member Angelina Jadrossich the foregoing resolution was adopted on a vote of 5 Ayes, 0 Nays.
