TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the conveyance of certain real property in the city of Poughkeepsie subject to section twenty of the general city law

PURPOSE: To allow the city of Poughkeepsie to convey a parcel of land to 1687 Properties LLC

Section two provides the description of the 2.717 acres to be conveyed.

Section three sets an immediate effective date.
