BILL NUMBER:S7307

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize the transfer of certain funds of the village of
Brockport, allocated for fire
protection and of unexpended cash and reserves of the Sweden Fire
Protection District and the
Clarkson Fire Protection District, to the Brockport Fire District,
following the formation of the Brockport
Fire District and the dissolution of the Sweden Fire Protection
District and the Clarkson Fire Protection
District

PURPOSE:
To authorize the transfer of certain funds
from the Village
of Brockport, the Sweden Fire Protection District, and the Clarkson
Fire Protection District to the newly created Brockport Fire District.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill authorizes the transfer of certain funds from
the Village of Brockport, the Sweden Fire Protection District, and
the Clarkson Fire Protection District to the newly created Brockport
Fire District.

Section 2 of the bill is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
The citizens of the Village of Brockport, and the Towns
of Sweden and Clarkson approved the formation of the Brockport Fire
District by a mandatory referendum in November 2011.

The newly formed Brockport Fire District consolidates the provision of
fire services of the Clarkson Fire Protection District, the Sweden
Fire Protection District and the Village of Brockport Fire Department
into a single unified entity - the Brockport Fire District. The
Brockport Fire District will serve the Village of Brockport, the Town
of Sweden and a portion of the Town of Clarkson. The Sweden Fire
Protection District and the Clarkson Fire Protection District will
dissolve effective June 31, 2012.

The Village of Brockport, the Sweden Fire Protection District, and the
Clarkson Fire Protection District have accumulated certain funds for
fire protection services. The Board of Trustees of the Village of
Brockport and the Town Boards of the Towns of Clarkson and Sweden are
seeking this Legislation in order to fund the newly created Brockport
Fire District for the period of July 1, 2012 until December 31, 2012.
This bill will accomplish that public purpose by authorizing the
transfer of certain funds, allocated for fire protection services,

from the Village of Brockport, the Sweden Fire Protection District,
and the Clarkson Fire Protection District to the newly created
Brockport Fire District.

This consolidation of fire services will best serve the needs of the
residents and businesses within the newly formed fire district by
granting direct decision making to the citizens of the newly formed
Brockport Fire District.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
