Most public officers employed by Seneca County must reside in the county.
To verify residency, the Board of Supervisors Tuesday will consider adoption of a new policy, recommended by the Government Operations Committee.
The meeting will be the one and only time the board meets in Ovid this year.
The new policy states that when the residency of a public officer is brought into question, a signed, written complaint shall be provided to the Department of Human Resources.
The Personnel Officer, currently Kathy Corona, would give the public officer in question an affidavit of residency to complete and return, along with required documentation, to the Human Services Department.
The affidavit and documentation will be provided to the county attorney who will receive the documents and make a determination of residency based on that information.
