BILL NUMBER:S6959

TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to extending the deadline by which
an eligible municipality may exercise the provisions of the Superstorm
Sandy assessment relief act

PURPOSE:

Extends the deadline for the Town of Smithtown to exercise the
provisions of the Superstorm Sandy assessment relief act

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1: States that notwithstanding any provisions of this chapter
or any other law to the contrary, the Town of Smithtown may exercise
the provisions of the Superstorm Sandy assessment relief act if its
town board shall, by the three hundred sixty-fifth day following
October twenty-second, two thousand thirteen, pass a local law
adopting the provisions of this act. The Town of Smithtown may provide
assessment relief for the real property impacted by Superstorm Sandy
located within the Town of Smithtown as provided in paragraphs (i),
(ii), (iii) and/or (iv) of subdivision (a) of section four of the
Superstorm Sandy assessment relief act only if its town board
specifically elects to do so as part of such local law or resolution.

Section 2: States that the law should be effective immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:

A Super Storm Sandy Assessment Relief Program was created by the
Governor in October 2013, after the devastating effects of the
Hurricane storm. The act was created to allow a local option for
municipalities to allow its local assessor to retroactively re-assess
property significantly damaged or destroy by the storm. The relief was
intended for the areas where there was significant flood and water
damage.

Municipalities, including school districts, had 45 days to adopt a
resolution that would allow for this reassessment to take place.
However, during that time, the Smithtown assessor and the Smithtown
Central School District had no information of any property that would
fall into the categories set forth in the state legislation, and as
such, has no reason to pass a resolution.

This same legislation allowed property owners to file an application
for relief for up to 90 days after the act's enactment. In late
January, at the end of the eligibility period for property owners,
there were four applications filed at the Smithtown Assessor's Office.

This legislation would allow the Town of Smithtown to adopt the
provisions of this act, and provide assessments relief for the real
properties impacted by Super Storm Sandy.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:


None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
