BILL NUMBER: S4126

TITLE OF BILL :
An act in relation to capital improvement projects in the Dundee
central school district


PURPOSE :
To allow the Dundee Central School District to be eligible for school
building aid that would have otherwise have been available to the
district had the district filed a timely final cost report.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section 1: Legislative findings which state the necessity of providing
anticipated capital construction aid for projects 680801-0004-07 and
680801-4002-003 to the Dundee school district.
Section 2: Ratifies the acts of the Dundee Central school district in
attempting to comply with cost report filing deadlines for the
2009-2010 fiscal year.
Section 3: Directs the education department to consider the school
district's approved costs as valid and proper.
Section 4: Provides that the act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION :
Without payment of this aid, the capital improvement projects
undertaken by the Dundee Central School District will impose
additional, unanticipated hardship on district taxpayers. This bill
will allow for a lessor impact upon district taxpayers and assure that
anticipated revenue is eventually made available to the district.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
2008: S.8666- Passed Senate/A.11727 - Education Committee

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
Taxpayers in the Dundee Central school district would be subject to a
minimum 21% increase in their tax levy without this legislation.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
Immediately.

AN ACT in relation to capital improvement projects in the Dundee central
  school district

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds that the
Dundee central school  district  approved  several  capital  improvement
projects which were designated by the department of education as project
numbers  680801-0004-007  and 680801-4002-003. In addition, the projects
were eligible for certain state aid. The legislature further finds  that
due  to ministerial error, required filings for eligibility for such aid
were not made by the district in a timely  manner  making  the  district
ineligible  for  certain aid. The legislature further finds that without
such aid, the capital improvement projects will  impose  an  additional,
unanticipated hardship on district taxpayers.
  S  2.    All the acts done and proceedings heretofore had and taken or
caused to be had and taken by the Dundee central school district and  by
all  its  officers  or  agents relating to or in connection with certain
final cost reports to be filed with  the  department  of  education  for
projects  680801-0004-007  and  680801-4002-003, and all acts incidental
thereto  are  hereby  legalized,  validated,  ratified  and   confirmed,
notwithstanding  any  failure  to  comply  with  the approval and filing
provisions of the education law or any other law or any other  statutory
authority,  rule  or  regulation,  in  relation to any omissions, error,
defect, irregularity or illegality in such proceedings  had  and  taken,
and  provided  further  that  any  amount  due and payable to the Dundee
central school district for school years prior to the two thousand nine-

-two thousand ten school year as a result of  this  act  shall  be  paid
pursuant  to  the  provisions of paragraph c of subdivision 5 of section
3604 of the education law.

approved costs of the aforementioned projects as valid and proper  obli-
gations of the Dundee central school district.
