PURPOSE: To enable the Town of Brookhaven to re-convey to Rock Solid Corporation parcels of land not needed for open space purposes.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one authorizes the Brookhaven Town Board to re-convey, to Rock Solid Corporation, certain parcels of land, upon such terms as the Town Board deems reasonable.
Section two describes the parcels of land. Section three is the effective date.
JUSTIFICATION: In December 2012, Rock Solid Corporation conveyed several parcels of land to the Town of Brookhaven in exchange for sanitary credits needed for the development of a larger plot of land. Pursuant to Resolution 2012-976 of the Town Board, this land was to kept for open space purposes. However, through no fault of their own, the intended purchaser of the larger plot defaulted on the contract of purchase.
This bill is meant to authorize the re-conveyance of the plots of land that were traded to the town for sanitary credits, thereby putting Rock Solid in the same position that they were prior to the purchaser's default.
LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is new legislation.
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the state.
