BILL NUMBER:S271

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to remove from
the Albert Wisner memorial public library service area that
portion of the town of Chester, in the county of Orange, which is located
within such district

PURPOSE:
This bill removes that portion of the Town of Chester that is
currently located in the Albert Wisner Memorial Public Library
District. That portion of the Town of Chester would still remain in
the Town of Chester Public Library.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1: This bill removes that portion of the Town of Chester that
is currently in the Albert Wisner Memorial Public Library District.
The boundaries for the Albeit Wisner Memorial Public Library District
are currently the same boundaries as the Warwick Valley Central
School District which includes a portion of the Town of Chester.
Under this bill, properties located roughly in the hamlet of Sugar
Loaf would no longer pay taxes to support the Albert Wisner Library
and would no longer be in its service area. Residents of Sugar Loaf
would still remain in the boundaries of the Town of Chester municipal
library, pay real property taxes to support such library, and obtain
their library services from that library district.

EXISTING LAW:
See above.

JUSTIFICATION:
Under current law, the residents of the hamlet of Sugar Loaf (in the
Town of Chester) pay library taxes to support both the Town of
Chester municipal library and the Albert Wisner Library. This bill
would end the double taxation issue for those residents that are now
obligated to support two different libraries.
