BILL NUMBER:S6578A

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
in relation
to authorizing the use of sewer surplus for infrastructure projects
other than sewer projects in the Village of Sherburne

PURPOSE:
The legislation would allow the village of Sherburne in
Chenango County to use surplus funds received from sewer rents for
other infrastructure projects.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section one amends section 453 of the
general municipal law by adding a new subdivision allowing the
village of Sherburne to use up to 40 percent of the surplus monies
from the sewer rent fund for infrastructure improvements. Section two
is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
While water utilities are able to use their surplus
funds for any municipal purpose, sewer utilities are limited to using
excess revenues for sewer-related purposes only.
Under current law, revenues derived from sewer rents, including
penalties and interest, are credited to a special fund and the use of
the money is not permitted beyond costs incurred that relate to the
sewer system.

Allowing the village to use a limited amount of these funds to address
infrastructure issues would be a realistic and appropriate way to
address infrastructure problems.

Requested by the village of Sherburne, the legislation would allow the
village to use money from the sewer rent fund to pay expenses or
obligations incurred for infrastructure improvements, after paying
off all sewer related expenses. The village would also be able to
allocate up to 40 percent of the surplus to a special fund to be used
specifically for infrastructure improvements. Sewer needs will be
addressed first, and the village would be able to utilize a portion
of the excess funds derived from sewer rents to address related
issues to economic growth requiring new sewer infrastructure.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill for this village. Similar to S.5420.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
The sixtieth day after it shall have become a law.

ments, or to be placed in a capital reserve fund, not  to  exceed  forty
