BILL NUMBER:S4560

TITLE OF BILL: An act authorizing the commissioner of transportation
to transfer certain lands in the county of Allegany to the town of
Andover

PURPOSE: Authorizes the commissioner of transportation to convey
certain land to the town of Andover, in the county of Allegany.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one, notwithstanding any other
provision of law, authorizes the commissioner of transportation to
transfer and convey, in whole or in part, lands located in the town of
Andover, county of Allegany.

Section two sets forth the metes and bounds description of the parcel
of land authorized to be transferred and conveyed to the town of
Andover.

Section three provides that application for the transfer or conveyance
must be made within two years after the effective date of this act.

Section four provides for revision of such lands back to the state if
at any time it ceases to be used for the purposes intended in this
act.

Section five provides an immediate effective date,.

JUSTIFICATION: The New York State Department of Transportation (DOT)
has agreed to allow the Town of Andover to use this land so long as it
advances the public purpose of providing the town with additional
lands for the storage of materials and the storage, repair and
maintenance of equipment needed to maintain' the town highway system,
Several years ago, DOT informally abandoned the property, moving their
operations to Wellsville. DOT no longer has use for the land. Since
DOT's informal abandonment of the property, the Town of Andover has
occupied the property, obtained the appropriate Department of
Environmental Conservation permits for the maintenance facility on the
property, and has transferred the utilities to the town. This
legislation serves as a formality to a preexisting agreement between
the Department of Transportation and the Town of Andover, Allegany
County.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately
