BILL NUMBER:S5352A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize future cemetery fund transfers
from one cemetery located in the town of Bedford to other cemeteries
in the town of Bedford and to legalize, validate, ratify and confirm
the transfer of cemetery funds made by the town board of the town of
Bedford from one cemetery in the town of Bedford to other cemeteries
within such town

PURPOSE: This bill authorizes the town of Bedford in Westchester
county to apply revenue received from any one municipally-owned town
cemetery to another municipally-owned town cemetery.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 authorizes the town of Bedford in the County of Westchester
to apply any revenue received from Chichester cemetery owned by the
town to help defray the cost of improvements made to any other public
cemetery owned by the town of Bedford.

Section 2 legalizes, validates, ratifies and confirms the previous
transfer of funds made by the Bedford town board from Chichester
Cemetery to other Bedford owned cemeteries.

Section 3 sets the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Cemeteries around the state are finding themselves in
disrepair with no funding to address this issue. Cemeteries serve a
very important (although seldom thought of) function in our society.
They help to preserve the history of many communities throughout our
state and around our great country. Some are large like Arlington
National Cemetery and some are much smaller like Bedford Cemetery.
Big or small they are all important and play a part in everyone's
life. They are a place of solace. They are a place of remembrance.
Finally, they are a place that we all go to when we wish to visit our
loved ones that have already passed. This is an important piece of
legislation and recognizes the importance that revenue plays in
preserving our cemeteries.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately
