TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the town of Islip to transfer ownership of certain lands to the village of Islandia
PURPOSE: This bill authorizes the town of Islip to convey a parcel of land in the town to the village of Islandia for the purpose of creating a village park.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The Town is authorized by this bill to convey the property of 6.86 acres on the easterly side of Nichols Road and the southerly side of South Connecting Road in the town of Islip in Suffolk county to the village of Islandia.
