BILL NUMBER:S5136 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general municipal law, in relation to the mandatory reserve fund for municipal corporations, fire districts, school districts and boards of cooperative educational services PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To extend the authority to establish a mandatory reserve fund to boards of cooperative educational services (BOCES). SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill would amend Section 6-1 of the General Municipal Law to extend the authority to establish a mandatory reserve fund to BOCES which already exists for municipal corporations, school districts and fire districts. JUSTIFICATION: BOCES, as a municipal entity, must make necessary capital improvements but does not have the legal authority to establish a reserve fund for this purpose. This bill would address this problem by extending this authority to BOCES.
