BILL NUMBER:S6905

TITLE OF BILL:
An act authorizing the county of Saratoga to discontinue for reforesta-
tion purposes the use of certain lands and to convey such lands

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill authorizes the County of Saratoga to discontinue
the use of land for reforestation purposes that is identified in section
2 and to convey the same to the Town of Moreau in exchange for a new
parcel identified in section 3 that shall be dedicated for reforestation
purposes.

Section 2 provides a legal description of the property to be conveyed.

Section 3 provides a legal description of the property to be acquired by
the County in exchange that shall be dedicated for reforestation
purposes.

Section 4 provides the bill shall be effective immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:
The County of Saratoga is willing to assist the Town of Moreau in regard
to a proposed water pump station by conveying a .082 acre parcel to the
Town.

However, the parcel in question has been dedicated for reforestation
purposes and by virtue of Section 219 of the County Law, an act of the
State Legislature is necessary in order to transfer the land.

The County as part of the agreement will replace the loss of reforesta-
tion land by obtaining from the Town another parcel of equal or greater
fair market value to the lands being alienated which the County will
dedicate for reforestation purposes.

The new parcel is already owned by the County, and is suitable for
reforestation purposes.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the State or to the County of Saratoga.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
