BILL NUMBER:S3726

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the highway law, in relation to the
limitation on certain highway expenses in the town of Brookhaven,
Suffolk county

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL: To increase the amount that the
Town of Brookhaven may spend for the purchase of stone crushers, power
rollers, motor trucks, scarifiers, concrete mixers, traction engines or
road machines for grading and scraping, equipment, tools and other
implements.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends subparagraph 1-d of paragraph a
of subdivision 3 of § 271 of the Highway Law to increase the amount that
the Town of Brookhaven may spend for the purchase of stone crushers,
power rollers, motor trucks, scarifiers, concrete mixers, traction
engines or road machines for grading and scraping, equipment, tools and
other implements.

JUSTIFICATION: The Town of Brookhaven has a population of approximately
450,000 people and has grown by approximately 50,000 in the past decade.
The Town's Highway Department services over 2,000 miles of road. Due to
the miles of roadway and the volume of traffic these roads endure each
year the $1 million limit is completely inadequate to meet the needs of
the residents. Many of the equipment needs are met by leasing and rent-
ing the necessary items which keeps costs down in the short term but is
less prudent financially over the long haul. There is also a concern
that with the population growth that even by renting and leasing equip-
ment needs may go unmet without an increase with the authorized spending
limit

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
