 BILL NUMBER:  S7627               REVISED 05/04/10

TITLE OF BILL : An act to authorize the village of Upper Brookville to expend trust funds to provide access to a park

PURPOSE : The bill authorizes the Village of Upper Brookville to expend certain funds from the recreation site and improvement fund for the repair of Donna Drive to provide access to a passive park.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS : Authorizes the Village of Upper Brookville to expend certain funds from the recreation, site and improvement fund for the repair of Donna Drive.

The expenditure will only be made following a majority vote of the Board of Trustees of the Village of Upper Brookville and will not exceed $200,000.

JUSTIFICATION : The Village of Upper Brookville seeks to utilize funds from the recreation, site and improvement fund for the repair and extensive rebuilding of Donna Drive. The road is in a state of disrepair and needs to be refurbished so that it can be used to safely access and egress from a proposed passive nature park project. The establishment of the passive park is contingent upon getting permission to use park funds from the recreation, site and improvement fund.

Section 7-730 of the New York State Village Law requires legislative approval to expend funds not used exclusively for recreational uses. This legislation will authorize the use of up to $200,000 for the rebuilding of Donna Drive, a road which provides access to the proposed passive park project.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY : New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS : None.

EFFECTIVE DATE : This act shall take effect immediately.
