Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the assessor of the town of Islip, county of Suffolk, is hereby author- ized to accept from BB/S Facilities Management Corporation an applica- tion or renewal application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law for the 2010-2011 town of Islip tax year assessment roll, for the parcel located at 145 Sycamore Avenue, Islandia, New York, 11749, also known as Lot 3 of Block 1 of section 17 of District 504.
