BILL NUMBER:S2778

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
in relation to making certain findings and determinations with respect
to bond anticipation notes issued by the village of Norwood, in the
town of Potsdam, county of St. Lawrence,
and validates and legalizes
such notes; and authorizes the issuance of obligations of such bond
anticipation notes with respect thereto

PURPOSE:
This legislation is to provide legislative relief by validating and
ratifying the Village of Norwood's actions with respect to bond
anticipation notes notwithstanding the village not making an
additional principal payment in 2009 or 2010.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1. Outlines history of the bond anticipation note the village
of Norwood issued to finance the construction of certain improvements
to their sewer plant and collection system.

Section 2. Provides that such bond is validated, ratified and confirmed.

Section 3. Provides that the bond shall be deemed to have been issued
in accordance with provisions of the local finance law.

Section 4. Provides standard protections so that if a court
invalidates any part of this act it does not invalidate the entire act.

Section 5. This act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:
On February 20, 2007, the Village of Norwood adopted a $2,386,000
resolution in anticipation of financing the cost of a Waste Water
Treatment Plant and Collection Improvement project with the USDA. The
Village issued a bond anticipation note in the amount of $2,386,000,
the proceeds of which were used for costs associated with the project.

The Village however violated provisions of the Local Finance law by
not making a principal payment towards the bond in 2009 or 2010. This
bill is needed to make sure that the bond note is now issued in
accordance with the provisions of the Local Finance law.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediate.
