AN ACT to amend the general municipal law, in  relation  to  authorizing
  the city of Auburn to prefer businesses located in the county of Cayu-
  ga in awarding public contracts

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

  Section 1. Subdivision 1 of section 103 of the general municipal  law,
as amended by section 1 of part FF of chapter 56 of the laws of 2010, is
amended to read as follows:
  1. Except as otherwise expressly provided by an act of the legislature
or  by  a  local  law adopted prior to September first, nineteen hundred
fifty-three, all contracts for public work involving an  expenditure  of
more  than  thirty-five  thousand  dollars  and  all  purchase contracts
involving an expenditure of more than twenty thousand dollars, shall  be
awarded  by  the  appropriate  officer,  board  or agency of a political
subdivision or of any district therein including but not  limited  to  a
soil  conservation district, to the lowest responsible bidder furnishing
the required security after advertisement for sealed bids in the  manner
provided by this section; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT IN THE CITY OF AUBURN,
FOR  PUBLIC  WORKS  AND  PURCHASE  CONTRACTS  UP TO ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND
DOLLARS, SUCH CONTRACTS MAY BE AWARDED TO THE RESPONSIBLE  BIDDER  WHOSE
BID  IS  WITHIN FIVE PERCENT OF THE BID OF THE LOWEST RESPONSIBLE BIDDER
AND IF THE PRINCIPAL PLACE OF BUSINESS OF SUCH BIDDER IS LOCATED  WITHIN
THE  COUNTY  OF  CAYUGA.  In any case where a responsible bidder's gross
price is reducible by an allowance for  the  value  of  used  machinery,
equipment,  apparatus  or  tools to be traded in by a political subdivi-
sion, the gross price shall be reduced by the amount of such  allowance,
for  the  purpose of determining the low bid. In cases where two or more
responsible bidders furnishing the required  security  submit  identical
bids  as  to price, such officer, board or agency may award the contract

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
