ant  to  subdivision  2  of  section  170 of the town law governing fire
districts, the boundary  of  the  Middletown-Hardenburgh  fire  district
shall  be  extended to include the territorial boundaries of the village
of Margaretville for the purposes of fire protection.
  S 2. Upon the completion by the town boards of Middletown and  Harden-

dures, and restrictions set forth in such section.
  S  3. On and after the completion of proceedings authorized by section

facilities within the village of Margaretville  as  it  did  before  the
enactment of this act. Such continued presence in the village of Margar-
etville shall not render the fire corporation the fire department of the

not-for-profit corporation law, provided, however, that for purposes  of

and Middletown.
  S 4. The towns of Hardenburgh and  Middletown,  village  of  Margaret-
ville, and the Middletown-Hardenburgh fire district shall use the exist-
ing procedures of section 170 of the town law for adoption of the resol-
utions  to  extend  the  Middletown-Hardenburgh  fire  district into the
village of Margaretville.
  S 5. This act shall take effect immediately.
