BILL NUMBER:S6649

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the town law, in relation to
authorizing the town board of the town of Fort Ann, in the county of
Washington, to diminish the area of the Lake Hadlock park district

PURPOSE:

Authorizes the town of Fort Ann, in the County of Washington to
diminish the area of the Lake Hadlock Park District.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends section 202-c of the town law to add a new
subdivision 10 to authorize the town of Fort Ann to, upon its own
motion and without a petition, but after a public hearing, diminish
the Lake Hadlock park district by deleting the five parcels described
in the legislation.

Section 2 contains the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

The Lake Hadlock Park District is a special district located in the
Town of Fort Ann in the County of Washington. This special district
was established pursuant to New York State Town Law in 1977 for the
benefit of the property owners who have access to or are bordering
Lake Hadlock. This special taxing district was described by using tax
map parcel identification numbers, however, over the years properties
have been subdivided and sold; as a result, these subdivided parcels
no longer have access to or boarder Lake Hadlock.

The Town Board does not have the authority pursuant to Town Law
section 202-c to remove the parcels on its own motion. Consequently,
the town has requested that this special legislation be adopted so
that the parcels of real property identified as not being benefitted
by the Lake Hadlock Park District can be removed from the special
district.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
