BILL NUMBER:S7757

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
extending the provision which authorizes
Pawling central school district to lease lands not
located within such school district

PURPOSE:
To allow the Pawling Central School District to lease land located
outside of the school district.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 authorizes the Pawling Central School District to enter into
a lease agreement for a term of 5 years for a building or facility
located outside of the school district, providing the facility is
located one-half mile outside of the school district boundary on old
Route 55 in the Town of Pawling.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Pawling Central School District is in need of a new bus
maintenance facility as the New York State Department of
Transportation has cited their current facility twice for unsafe
conditions. The school board has submitted a bond proposal to
construct a new facility to district voters three times, and it has
been voted down each time. It has been determined that it would not
be cost effective to attempt to renovate the current facility. The
school district has located property available for lease for a new
bus facility; however, it is located outside of the Pawling Central
School District. The Board of Education has attempted to work out an
arrangement with the neighboring school district to no avail;
therefore, the school district is in need of special legislation.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
