BILL NUMBER:S366

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the highway law, in relation to designating South Park Avenue in
the city of Lackawanna as a state highway

PURPOSE:
Enactment of this legislation would designate South Park Avenue in the
City of Lackawanna as a state highway, thereby relieving the city of
the costs and effort associated with the care and maintenance of such
road.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 amends paragraph 1 of subdivision 14 of section 341 of the
highway law, as amended by chapter 639 of the laws of 1987, to
include the portion of South Park A venue beginning at the town line
of the City of Buffalo south nine thousand nine hundred twenty feet
to the southern city line of the City of Lackawanna.

EXISTING LAW:
Under existing law, the portion of South Park Avenue that lies within
the City of Lackawanna must be plowed and maintained by the city, as
it is not considered to be a state highway for such purposes.

JUSTIFICATION:
The City of Lackawanna is currently facing very serious financial
problems, due to a shrinking tax base and rising costs. Although city
leaders have done a great deal to increase revenues, they are
nonetheless faced with mounting costs, such as road repair,
maintenance and snowplowing. Under New York's highway law, state
highways lying within city limits fall under the jurisdiction of said
city. The NYS Department of Transportation plows and maintains South
Park Avenue outside of the city limits, and this legislation would
include an additional 9,920 feet of South Park Avenue under NYS DOT
jurisdiction, thereby relieving the City of Lackawanna of the costs
associated with the care of this roadway.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2007-08: Referred to Transportation
2009-10: S.1978/A.3112 Referred to Transportation
2011-12: S.3103 Referred to Transportation

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Beneficial to City of Lackawanna, New York.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
