Notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of law, general, special or local, a county
may by local law assume the liability to save harmless and protect its county clerk
and employees of the county clerk's office from financial loss arising out of any
claim, demand, suit or judgment by reason of alleged negligence of said county clerk
or employees, provided such act was committed in the discharge of their duties and
within the scope of their employment. Such county may by act of its legislative body arrange for purchase and maintain
appropriate insurance with any insurance company authorized to do business in the
state of New York for coverage against such liability.
