TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the public authorities law, in relation to adding the town of
Kendall, Orleans county to the towns served by the Monroe county water
authority

PURPOSE:

To add the Town of Kendall (Orleans County) to the municipalities

the Town of Kendall to the Monroe County Water Authority's retail
service area.

Section 2 is the effective date

JUSTIFICATION:

In 2006, the Town of Kendall (located in Orleans County) entered into
an agreement with the Monroe County Water Authority (MCWA) to operate
and maintain Kendall's water system. To maximize efficiencies under
the agreement, both the Town of Kendall and MCWA would like to
include the Town of Kendall in the MCWA retail service area. By
amending section 1096 of the public authorities law, this legislation
will accomplish that goal.

to  or  included  in  such  system  or part thereof within the county of
Monroe, or in Genesee county, or in the town or village  of  Victor  and
the  towns  of East Bloomfield and West Bloomfield in Ontario county, or
in  the  village of Holley and the [town] TOWNS of Clarendon AND KENDALL
in Orleans county. To acquire, by  condemnation,  in  the  name  of  the
authority  in the counties of Monroe and Genesee, or in any other county
or municipality specifically enumerated in the first  sentence  of  this
subdivision,  or  in the name of the county of Monroe in the case of any
water facilities to be owned and financed by  such  county  pursuant  to
subdivision  sixteen-b of this section, lands, easements, rights in land
and water rights, and rights-of-way within the counties  of  Monroe  and
Genesee,  or in any other county or municipality specifically enumerated
in the first sentence of this subdivision, in  the  manner  provided  by
this title; or to purchase or lease lands, easements, rights in land and
water rights, and rights-of-way in connection therewith within the coun-
ty of Monroe or within Genesee county, or in any other county or munici-
pality  specifically  enumerated  in the first sentence of this subdivi-
sion; and to own and operate, maintain,  repair,  improve,  reconstruct,

together with the acquisition of such properties, are hereby declared to
be public purposes;
  7. To sell water, however acquired, by volume and at retail  to  indi-
vidual  consumers  within the county of Monroe for domestic, commercial,
industrial, and public purposes, or by volume or in bulk and  at  whole-
sale to any or all municipalities or privately owned public water supply
and  distribution systems in such county. The fact that any municipality
has procured or is about to  procure  an  independent  source  of  water
supply  shall  not  prevent such municipality from purchasing water from
the authority. To sell any water not needed in such county by volume and
at retail to individual consumers within the county of  Genesee,  or  in
the  town or village of Victor and the towns of East Bloomfield and West
Bloomfield in Ontario county, or in the village of Holley and the [town]

cial,  industrial,  and  public purposes, or by volume or in bulk and at

distribution system outside of  the  county;  provided  that  any  costs
incurred by the authority related to the Genesee county project shall be
recovered  by the authority solely from Genesee county or from rates and
charges collected from customers  within  Genesee  county;  and  further
provided  that the authority shall not sell water in any area outside of
the county unless the governing board of the municipality  wherein  such
area  is  located  shall  enter into an agreement with the authority for
service or sale of water by it in  such  area  or  shall  by  resolution
request  the  authority  to  sell  water within such area. Any agreement
between a municipality outside of the county and the authority  for  the
sale  of  water  to  or within such municipality shall be subject to the
approval of the legislative body of the contiguous county  wherein  such
municipality  is  located.  Not  only may the authority sell any surplus
water it may have developed, but it may develop and provide a sufficient
amount of water so as to supply water outside of the county to  individ-
ual  consumers, any municipality, or privately owned public water supply
and distribution system;
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
