CONSOLIDATORS'. GENERAL NOTE ON TOWN LAW

The Town Law has been rearranged without change of substance. It was originally passed in 1890 and so many amendments have been made to it since and so many additions have been inserted that it was deemed best to rearrange the material. The subject of "wrecks" has been transferred to the Navigation Law as a more appropriate classification. The officers charged with the care of wrecks are the sheriffs, coroners and wreck masters of the counties["old" Town Law, § 138] and the Governor is authorized to appoint wreck masters for certain counties ["old" Town Law, § 150]. It will be as convenient to refer to this subject in the Navigation Law, which is suggestive of the material, as it will be to consult the Town Law, where the matter has usually been found. The subject of wrecks heretofore has been combined in the Town Law with "Strays and chattels doing damage, floating timbers." The subject of "strays" has been allowed to remain in the Town Law, although section 393 of the Town Law makes this subject applicable to villages and cities and makes the trustees of villages and aldermen of cities fence viewers for the purposes of the article. There is in the Code of Civil Procedure matter relating to animals straying on highways [$$ 3082, etc.] and until the Code of Civil Procedure is revised and this material is removed and combined with other matter on the subject of strays under an appropriate heading it is deemed best to retain the subject of strays in the Town Law. There has also been added to the Town Law provisions relating to town meetings in certain counties of the State. In most instances these statutes apply only to a single county, but they are general in form and apply to many towns in each case and therefore have been consolidated in the Town Law. In many instances sections have been divided but the substance of the law has been preserved in each case.

The report of the Board of Statutory Consolidation is dated June 26, 1907, and the Consolidated Laws were enacted in 1909. The legislation for 1908 was examined by the board and any changes that affected the laws as reported in 1907 were embodied in the laws as reported by the board to the legislature of 1909.
