BILL NUMBER: S1757

TITLE OF BILL :
An act authorizing the county of Saratoga to discontinue for
reforestation purposes the use of certain lands and to convey such
lands


SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section 1 of the bill authorizes the County of Saratoga to discontinue
the use of not greater that 9.013 acres of land for reforestation
purposes that is identified in section 2 and to convey the same to the
Town of Moreau in exchange for a new parcel identified in section 3
that shall be dedicated for reforestation purposes.

Section 2 provides a legal description of the property to be conveyed.

Section 3 provides a legal description of the property to be acquired
by the County in exchange that shall be dedicated for reforestation
purposes.

Section 4 provides the bill shall be effective immediately.

JUSTIFICATION :
The County of Saratoga is willing to assist the Town of Moreau in
regard to a proposed new court and public safety facility by conveying
a 9.013 acre parcel to the Town.

However, the parcel in question has been dedicated for reforestation
purposes and by virtue of Section 219 of the County Law, an act of the
State Legislature is necessary in order to transfer the land.

The County as part of the agreement will replace the loss of
reforestation land by obtaining from the Town another parcel of equal
or greater fair market value to the lands being alienated which the
County will dedicate for reforestation purposes.

The new parcel is adjacent to existing reforestation land already
owned by the County, and is more suitable for reforestation purposes.

The land to be conveyed due to its location is ideally suited for
locating this public safety facility and is in the best interest of
both municipalities.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
06/24/08 S.8259-A Rules
06/17/08 A.1164-A Local Governments

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None to the State or to the County of Saratoga.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
Immediately.
