BILL NUMBER:S2921

TITLE OF BILL: An act authorizing the village of Sagaponack in the town
of Southampton, county of Suffolk to enter into an inter-municipal
agreement for the provision of police services with any town in the
county of Suffolk

PURPOSE: This legislation would authorize the village of Sagaponack,
town of Southampton, to enter into an inter-municipal agreement for the
provision of police services with any town in Suffolk County.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: An act authorizing the village of Sagaponack,
town of Southampton, county of Suffolk, to enter into an inter-municipal
agreement for the provisions of police services pursuant to article 5-G
of the General Municipal Law with any town within Suffolk County that
has an established police department pursuant to Section 150 of the Town
Law. Any such agreement shall delineate the services to be performed and
shall provide the compensation to be paid to the town for such police
services. In the instance that such an inter-municipal agreement has
been approved and is in effect, no town assessment on property in the
village of Sagaponack shall be made for the maintenance or operation of
the town police department, pursuant to Section 150 of the Town Law.

JUSTIFICATION: Local governments, faced with economic problems such as
deficits, taxpayers' objections to new taxes, and the increasing cost of
government services, must look at creative strategies to maximize their
revenues. One way local governments deal with these problems is to turn
to other local governments and enter into cooperative agreements.

Intergovernmental cooperation may be defined as an arrangement among two
or more governments for accomplishing common goals, providing a service,
or solving a common problem. Article 5-G of the General Municipal Law
provides municipal officials in New York State with broad authority to
enter into cooperative intergovernmental agreements. Simply stated,
governments may perform a function or service jointly rather than indi-
vidually.

An important reason for municipalities to seriously look at intergovern-
mental cooperation is the economies of scale it may produce. Unit costs
of service decrease as the volume of the service increases. The citizens
of the Village of Sagaponack would be able to realize significant cost
savings if they were able to enter into an inter-municipal agreement for
their police Protection.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Legislation, 2013.

FISCAL IMPLICATION: To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.

An act authorizing the Village of Sagaponack, Town of Southampton,
county of Suffolk, to enter into an inter-municipal agreement for the
provisions of police services pursuant to article 5-G of the General
Municipal Law with any town within Suffolk County with which it shares
a border and has an established police department pursuant to Section

inter-municipal agreement has been approved and is in effect, no town
assessment on property in the Village of Sagaponack shall be made for
the maintenance or operation of the town police department, pursuant
to Section 150 of the Town Law, nor shall the Southampton Town Police
Department have any legal obligation to provide police services, as
required by Section 150 of the Town Law. If such inter-municipal
agreement is with a town other than the Town of Southampton, the Town
of Southampton may by resolution authorize such other town to provide
police services for any Town of Southampton property located within
the Village of Sagaponack. If the Town of Southampton has not
authorized another town to provide police services for any Town of
Southampton property located within the Village of Sagaponack, then
the Town of Southampton shall be required to provide police services
on any such town property, and shall be authorized to assess, levy and
collect from the taxable property the Village of Sagaponack for the
costs of the Southampton Town Police Department's obligation to
provide police services on such Town of Southampton property located
within such village.
