BILL NUMBER:S6114A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 433 of the laws of 1996 relating to creating the Wallkill public library district in the town of Shawangunk, Ulster county, in relation to the number of trustees of such district

PURPOSE: This bill would establish that the number of members managing and controlling the board of trustees is to consist of seven to eleven members, as the board deems necessary.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Amends paragraph (c) of subdivision 1 of section 2 of the chapter 433 of the laws of 1996 relating to creating the Wallkill public library district in the town of Shawangunk, Ulster county, to provide for the election of at least seven but no more than eleven trustees.

Section 2. Amends section 3 of chapter 433 of the laws of 1996 relating to creating the Wallkill public library district in the town of Shawangunk, Ulster county, to provide for the management of the district by a board of trustees consisting of at least seven but no more than eleven members. It also provides for the majority of the board to be able to change the number of trustees within the range of seven to eleven.

Section 3. Effective Date.

JUSTIFICATION: The Wallkill Public Library has requested this amendment to their charter as they feel that seven trustees can adequately govern its current district size as opposed to the eleven currently required by their charter. This legislation provides the board with the option to expand the number of members up to eleven individuals, if deemed necessary, to fit the needs of special projects.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
