Welcome To The Scarsdale Procedure Committee Website

 

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE COMMITTEE?

The Procedure Committee is organized each year to conduct the election of candidates to the Citizens Nominating Committee (CNC) and to review, and periodically to propose revisions to the Non-Partisan Resolution, which is one of the governance instruments for the Non-Partisan System in Scarsdale. Its members consist of the ten graduating members of the previous year's CNC, two members of Scarsdale Neighborhood Association Presidents (SNAP), and ten members appointed by the Town and Village Civic Club (TVCC). Each appointed person serves a one-year term but may be reappointed.

WHAT IS THE CITIZENS NOMINATING COMMITTEE?

The Citizens Nominating Committee consists of thirty elected representatives, six each from the five voting districts [Edgewood, Fox Meadow, Greenacres, Heathcote and Quaker Ridge], and each serving a three-year term. Traditionally, a new class of ten representatives is elected in November at a Village-wide contested election.  Click on "Nominating Committee" above to see the list of current members.

The CNC meets throughout December and January to interview applicants for the Scarsdale Citizens' Non-Partisan Party slate of candidates for Village Mayor, Village Trustees, and Village Justice. The Scarsdale Village Election is held in March.

The CNC Public Organization Meeting was recently held on Sunday, December 4, 2016. Scarsdale Public Television recorded the event.  View the program now on www.scarsdalepublictv.com
