BILL NUMBER:S2152

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend chapter 542 of the laws of 1997 relating to authorizing the
village of Round Lake in the town of Malta and county of Saratoga to
discontinue the use as such of certain park lands no longer needed for
park purposes and to lease the same, in relation to extending the
provisions thereof and providing for the return of such lands upon the
occurrence of certain conditions

PURPOSE:
In 1997, the State of New York granted the Village of Round Lake the
right, subject to approval by the village board, to lease a parcel of
park land for use by a public utility/personal wireless facility.
Pursuant to this law, the village of Round Lake then entered into an
option and lease agreement with Bell Atlantic Mobile for a term of
five years. Both parties subsequently agreed to renew said lease for
two additional five-year terms. Bell Atlantic Mobile expressed
interest in again extending the lease for five additional five-year
terms, while only one extension may be granted by the Village of
Round Lake pursuant to existing law. In addition to this remaining
available five-year term, this legislation would grant the village
board authority to renew said lease to accommodate the request by
Bell Atlantic Mobil.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one changes the term for which park land located within the
village of Round Lake may be leased from twenty to forty years.
Further, the bill includes a provision requiring that said land be
"returned substantially to its previous state" to bring the
legislation in line with more recent alienation laws. To address the
pier foundations required for safety and compliance, the bill adopts
a standard decommissioning approach of requiring removal to at least
three feet below the surface.

EXISTING LAW:
Chapter 542 of the Laws of 1997.

JUSTIFICATION:
This change will allow the Village of Round Lake to continue receipt
of lease revenues, which must be used exclusively for the purchase of
new park land and/or the improvement of existing park land. Further,
such use of this land will have no negative impact on the
environment, and in fact will provide ecological benefits at the
expiration of lease terms.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
