BILL NUMBER:S6451

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the town of East Hampton to alienate and convey its interest in parkland, jointly owned by the towns of East Hampton and Southampton, to the town of Southampton

PURPOSE: Authorizes the town of East Hampton to alienate, transfer and convey its interest in the Poxabogue Golf Center, jointly owned by the towns of East Hampton and Southampton, to the town of Southampton.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1: Authorizes the town of East Hampton to alienate, transfer and convey its interest in the Poxabogue Golf Center, jointly owned by the town of of East Hampton and Southampton, to the town of Southampton for use by the town of Southampton for continued park and recreational purposes. Any revenues received from the transfer of such parkland shall be used to payoff the remaining debt on such parklands and any residual monies shall be used for capital improvements of existing park and recreational facilities and/or for the acquisition of additional park and recreational purposes in the town of East Hampton.

Section 2: provides a meets and bounds and description of the specific property to be alienated, transferred and conveyed.

Section 4: Specifies the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: For the past few years, the Town of East Hampton has been implementing several cost saving measures in order to return to a sound financial condition. In keeping with that effort, the town of East Hampton's adopted 2012 budget includes an initiative for the sale of East Hampton's 50% share of the Poxabogue Golf Center to the town of Southampton. The revenues generated from this sale will enable the town to pay debt principal on the property over the next four years, at which point, the original bond can be paid off in full. The debt balance will be paid in full after the tenth year of the loan issuance date thus saving the town $100,000 in interest. This will create a cash flow and will help to keep the tax levy down in future years.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
