BILL NUMBER:S6058

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the local finance law, in relation to providing for a period of
probable usefulness to the payment for a separation incentive program by
the town of Southampton, county of Suffolk

PURPOSE:
This legislation provides for a period of probable usefulness to the
payment for a separation incentive program by the Town of
Southampton, County of Suffolk.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Paragraph a of section 11.00 of the local finance law is amended by
adding a new subdivision 106 allowing the payments by the Town of
Southampton, County of Suffolk for a town approved employee
separation incentive program to be spread over a ten-year period.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Town of Southampton is currently seeking to implement many cost
saving measures including the consolidation of government services as
part of the 2012 Tentative Budget. To best achieve this goal, the
Town would like to implement the "2012 Reorganization and Retirement
Incentive Program" and issue up to a ten (10) year term bond to
amortize the costs incurred by this program.

This legislation is necessary in order to implement the Town of
Southampton's "2012 Reorganization and Retirement Incentive Program"
thereby allowing the Town to achieve a reduction in work force and
realize an ongoing net savings through a plan that will be least
disruptive to the employees. It amends the local finance law to
provide for a period of probable usefulness to the payment for such a
separation incentive program by the Town, to be spread out over a
period of up to ten years.

Similar legislation has recently been enacted for the Town of East
Hampton in Suffolk County (Chapter 477 of the Laws of 2011). Nassau
County has also implemented a separation incentive in the past.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
