BILL NUMBER:S6917

TITLE OF BILL:
An act in relation to including the trustees of the Freeholders and
Commonalty of the town of Southampton, trustees of the Freeholders and
Commonalty of the town of East Hampton and the trustees of the Freehold-
ers and Commonalty of the town of Southold as municipal corporations for
the purposes of section 72-h of the general municipal law

PURPOSE:
To include the trustees of the Freeholders and Commonalty of the Town of
Southampton, the trustees of the Freeholders and Commonalty of the Town
of East Hampton and the trustees of the Freeholders and Commonalty of
the Town of Southold as municipal corporations for the purposes of
Section 72-h of the General Municipal Law.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1. Provides that for the purposes of Section 72-h of the General
Municipal Law, the term "municipal corporation" shall include: (a) the
trustees of the Freeholders and Commonalty of the Town of Southampton;
(b) the trustees of the Freeholders and Commonalty of the Town of East
Hampton; and (c) the trustees of the Freeholders and Commonalty of the
Town of Southold.

Section 2. Effective Immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:
Typically, the County of Suffolk transfers land pursuant to Section 72-h
of the General Municipal Law. This section states that land transfers
only occur to municipal corporations, which through definition are
limited to county, town and village government. While not a taxing
jurisdiction, the trustees of the Freeholders and Commonalty of the Town
of Southampton, the trustees of the Freeholders and Commonalty of the
Town of East Hampton and the trustees of the Freeholders and Commonalty
of the Town of Southold are clearly a form of local elected government
and would greatly benefit from the ability to receive land at no cost
from the County to be placed under their stewardship. This legislation
would provide that for the purposes of Section 72-h of the General
Municipal Law, the term "municipal corporation" shall include the trus-
tees of the Freeholders and Commonalty of the Town of Southampton, the
trustees of the Freeholders and Commonalty of the Town of East Hampton
and the trustees of the Freeholders and Commonalty of the Town of Sout-
hold.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Legislation, 2012

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.
