BILL NUMBER:S948

TITLE OF BILL: An act to provide for the participation by the Marlboro central school district, in the county of Ulster, in all negotiations and proceedings arising out of compromised or settled tax certiorari claims involving such school district, the town of Newburgh and certain Dynegy limited liability companies

PURPOSE: This legislation would afford the Marlboro Central School District the opportunity to take part in the negotiation, legal proceedings and discussions regarding any settlement or agreement between the Town of Newburgh and the Dynegy Corporation.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1-authorizes and directs the Marlboro central school district to participate in all negotiations and proceedings related to renewal of an agreement for the compromise and settlement of claims arising in tax certiorari proceedings of Dynegy Roseton, LLC. V. The Assessor and the Board of Assessment of the Town of Newburgh and the Town of Newburgh, County of Orange, New York and the Marlboro Central School District and Dynegy Danskammer, LLC. v. The Assessor and the Board of Assessment of the Town of Newburgh, County of Orange, New York and Marlboro Central School District and any related judicial proceedings. The Marlboro central school district shall, in cooperation with the town of Newburgh in the county of Orange, participate in such negotiations and proceedings with Dynegy Roseton, LLC. and Dynegy Danskammer, LLC.

Section 2-effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: During the last settlement in 2008 between the Town of Newburgh and Dynegy, the Marlboro Central School district did not have an opportunity to have input. This settlement severely impacted Marlboro's schools and community. Academic programs were dismantled and many homes have were foreclosed upon due to the increased tax burden on home owners.

Since Marlboro Central School District was so negatively affected due to the last settlement, the school district should have a voice and a presence at any further proceedings or negotiations relating to this matter.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2011/2012- S.4628-Referred to Local Government

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
