Memo

BILL NUMBER:S4647

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the commissioner of general services to transfer and convey certain land to the Thiells-Roseville fire district

PURPOSE:

The purpose of the bill is to allow for the Office of General Services (OGS) to transfer lands owned by Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) to the Thiells-Roseville Fire District.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Authorizes the Commissioner of OGS to transfer and convey to the Thiells-Roseville Fire District approximately 1.2 acres of land that is currently owned by OPWDD.

Section 2. Describes the 1.2 acres of land that is to be transferred and conveyed to Thiells-Roseville Fire District.

Section 3. This section states that the description in section 2 is not intended to be a legal description but rather to identify the land to be conveyed. The Thiells-Roseville Fire District must submit to the Commissioner of OGS an accurate survey and description of the land.

Section 4. Thiells-Roseville Fire District has one year to make an application for conveyance of the land.

Section 5. States that the lands can only be used exclusively for the purpose of the Thiells-Roseville Fire District to and upon termination of such use the title to the lands will revert back to the State of New York.

Section 6. This act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:

The Hamlet of Thiells, in the Town of Haverstraw, has seen a population growth over the past several years and, as a result, the community has continued, to expand. Due to the growth in the population, the Thiells-Roseville Fire District has had to serve a much larger community which is why the fire district has enlisted and continues to enlist more volunteer firefighters. As such, the current fire district station cannot adequately meet the needs of the increasing number of firefighters. Therefore, in order to accommodate the growing community and growing number of fire fighters needed for the safety of the community, the district would like to expand its facilities. This land conveyance will allow the fire district to construct a new substation which would meet the needs of the community for the next 25-50 years.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

A10069 of 2011-12-Passed Assembly

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Effective Immediately.
