AN ACT to legalize, validate, ratify and confirm the establishment and
funding of water district no. 7 in the town of Brutus, county of Cayu-
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
Section 1. Notwithstanding any provision of the local finance law, the
general municipal law or any law, all proceedings and actions had and
taken by the town of Brutus in the county of Cayuga, in relation to
establishing and funding water district no. 7 are hereby legalized,
validated, ratified and confirmed.
S 2. The town board of Brutus drilled a water line under the New York
state thruway at a cost of $35,000.00. The New York state thruway was
under repairs and if the town of Brutus had not had access until after
the thruway was repaired, the cost of installing the water line would
have been in excess of $200,000.00. Thus, the actions of the town saved
the taxpayers a significant sum of money. The town board of Brutus was
unable to properly post notices and public hearings for its actions
because of the necessity for quick action to install the pipe when the
access was ideal due to the thruway construction.
S 3. The town of Brutus took a statutory installment bond with Savan-
nah Bank in the amount of $35,000.00. This will be paid over a ten year
period at 1.5 percent interest. The district has been formed and will
now assume the cost of the bond and repay advance to the general fund.
S 4. This act shall take effect immediately.
EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
