Memo

 BILL NUMBER:  S5863

TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend the general municipal law, in relation to the Freeport community development agency

PURPOSE : To amend the general municipal law, in relation to the Freeport community development agency.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS : Section 1 amends section 620 of the general municipal law allow the mayor to appoint members to the Freeport community development agency.

Section 2. Effective immediately.

JUSTIFICATION : At the request of the Village of Freeport, this legislation would allow the Freeport Community Development Agency to comply with the Public Authorities Accountability Act of 2005. The act requires certain financial reporting and disclosure to the "local legislative body" within the agency's jurisdiction. In Freeport's case the legislative body and agency's corporate structure are identical, making any reporting done by the agency essentially self reporting.

This Legislation would allow the Mayor of the Village of Freeport to appoint four members to the Freeport Community Development Agency, allowing them to fully comply with the Public Accountability Act of 2005.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY : New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS : None.

EFFECTIVE DATE : Immediately.
