PURPOSE: The bill authorizes the Village of Oyster Bay Cove to expend trust funds from the recreation site and improvement fund for the construction of a village hall and police headquarters.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Authorizes the Village of Oyster Bay Cove to expend certain funds from the recreation, site and improvement fund for the construction of a village hall and police headquarters on Route 25A.

The expenditure will only be made following a majority vote of the Board of Trustees of the Village of Oyster Bay Cove and will not exceed $955,851.

JUSTIFICATION: The Village of Oyster Bay Cove seeks to utilize funds from the recreation, site and improvement fund for the construction of a village hall and police headquarters.
