BILL NUMBER:S4628

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to provide for the participation by the Marlboro central school
district, in the county of Ulster, in all negotiations and proceedings
arising out of compromised or settled tax certiorari claims involving
such school district, the town of Newburgh and certain Dynegy limited
liability companies

PURPOSE:
This legislation would afford the Marlboro Central School District the
opportunity to take part in the negotiation, legal proceedings and
discussions regarding any settlement or agreement between the Town of
Newburgh and the Dynegy Corporation.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1-authorizes and directs the Marlboro central school district
to participate in all negotiations and proceedings related to renewal
of an agreement for the compromise and settlement of claims arising
in tax certiorari proceedings of Dynegy Roseton, LLC. V. The Assessor
and the Board of Assessment of the Town of Newburgh and the Town of
Newburgh, County of Orange, New York and the Marlboro Central School
District and Dynegy Danskammer, LLC. v. The Assessor and the Board of
Assessment of the Town of Newburgh, County of Orange, New York and
Marlboro Central School District and any related judicial
proceedings. The Marlboro central school district shall, in
cooperation with the town of Newburgh in the county of Orange,
participate in such negotiations and proceedings with Dynegy Roseton,
LLC. and Dynegy Danskammer, LLC.

Section 2-effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
During the last settlement in 2008 between the Town of Newburgh and
Dynegy, the Marlboro Central School district did not have an
opportunity to have input. This settlement severely
impacted Marlboro's schools and community. Academic programs were
dismantled and many homes have were foreclosed upon due to the
increased tax burden on home owners.

Since Marlboro Central School District was so negatively affected due
to the last settlement, the school district should have a voice and a
presence at any further proceedings or negotiations relating to this
matter.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
