Local Laws


Procedure for Adoption of Local Laws

The Erie County Legislature may adopt, amend or repeal a local law. A local law is a law adopted pursuant to the Erie County Charter within the power to do so granted by the constitution, any act of the legislature or provision of the charter. A local law may relate to the property, affairs or government of the county or any other subject matter of county concern.

The process begins with the clocking-in of a local law introduction (commonly referred to as a local law intro) sponsored by one or more Erie County Legislators. A minimum of eight days must pass before the local law intro may be acted upon and approved. A simple majority of the voting membership is required to approve a local law intro.

Every local law intro adopted by the county legislature must be certified by the clerk of the county legislature and presented to the county executive for his consideration and approval. The county executive is required to hold a public hearing on the local law before making a decision on whether to approve it or not.

If the county executive approves the local law intro, he shall sign it and return it to the clerk of the county legislature. The local law intro is given an official local law number and takes effect upon being filed with the New York Secretary of State.

If the county executive disapproves the local law intro, he must return it to the clerk of the legislature with his objections stated in writing. The county legislature, within thirty days thereafter, may reconsider the local law. If after the reconsideration such local law intro is repassed by a vote of at least two-thirds of the total voting power of the county legislature, it shall be deemed adopted, not withstanding the objections of the county executive.
