TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the commissioner of general services to transfer and convey certain unappropriated state land to Monroe county
PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill is to transfer state property at the Industry Residential Center in the town of Rush to the county of Monroe for the use of the county's certified juvenile detention center.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one of the bill authorizes the commissioner of general services to transfer and convey to the county of Monroe, the state property at the Industry Residential Center in the town of Rush by no less than fifty-one percent of the total expenditures of the state in rehabilitating the premises for occupancy by the county of Monroe.
Section two of the bill provides the coordinates and physical details of the parcel of land to be transferred.
Section three compels the county of Monroe to submit an accurate survey and description of the land.
Section four gives one year for the county of Monroe to apply for the transfer to the state.
Section five details the restrictions and reverter for the county of Monroe to maintain in order to permit this transfer and conveyance.
Section six is the effective date.
JUSTIFICATION: The county of Monroe is in need of a new facility to house its juvenile detention center. The Office of Children and Family Services, along with Office of General Services have been working with the county to find a suitable facility for the county's needs that would be cost-efficient and provide for a swift transition. This state-owned facility is not currently being utilized, and would meet both the county and state's standards after rehabilitating the premises for a juvenile detention center. All parties have worked together to support this transfer and this legislation seeks to put into statute the transfer and conveyance of the land, providing for certain restrictions where the state may reclaim the land should the county of Monroe not meet specific regulations.
LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New legislation.
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the state.
EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
