BILL NUMBER: S647A

TITLE OF BILL :

An act to remove from the Albert Wisner memorial public library
service area that portion of the town of Chester, in the county of
Orange, which is located within such district


PURPOSE :

This bill removes that portion of the Town of Chester that is
currently located in the Albert Wisner Memorial Public Library
District. That portion of the Town of Chester would still remain in
the Town of Chester Public Library.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :

Section 1: This bill removes that portion of the Town of Chester that
is currently in the Albert Wisner Memorial Public Library District.
The boundaries for the Albert Wisner Memorial Public Library District
are currently the same boundaries as the Warwick Valley Central School
District which includes a portion of the Town of Chester. Under this
bill, properties located roughly in the hamlet of Sugar Loaf would no
longer pay taxes to support the Albert Wisner Library and would no
longer be in its service area. Residents of Sugar Loaf would still
remain in the boundaries of the Town of Chester municipal library, pay
real property taxes to support such library, and obtain their library
services from that library district.

EXISTING LAW :

See above.

JUSTIFICATION :

Under current law, the residents of the hamlet of Sugar Loaf (in the
Town of Chester) pay library taxes to support both the Town of Chester
municipal library and the Albert Wisner Library. This bill would end
the double taxation issue for those residents that are now obligated
to support two different libraries.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :

S.8033 of 2006; S.1356 of 2007/2008

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :

None.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
On the first of July next succeeding the date on which it shall have
become law.
