Clarifies the reference in the introductory language to the change to Section 5 of Chapter 502 of the Session Laws of 1963.

Further amends Section 3 of the Hildebran Town Charter (SL 1899-212), by requiring that the elective officers of Hildebran (mayor and five commissioners) be elected for staggered terms of four years. Deletes the proposed provisions that required that (1) in 2024, and quadrennially thereafter, two commissioners be elected to four-year terms; and (2) in 2026, and quadrennially thereafter, the Mayor and three commissioners be elected to four-year terms.

Requires the register of deeds office to be open, except on State holidays, Monday-Friday, at least 40 hours per week. Prohibits the office from closing before 5:00 pm and requires accepting instruments and documents for filing until that time (under current law, a county's board of commissioners is allowed to fix what days of each week, and at what hours, the register of deeds must be in the office in person or by deputy).

Amends Section 1.7(b) of SL 2021-56 by clarifying that Section 1.7(a) (prohibiting elections to the Lexington City Board of Education from being held in 2021), not Section 1.6(a) of the act is effective only if the federal decennial census information for the 2020 census has not been received by the Lexington City Board of Education by July 19, 2021.
