AN  ACT to amend the transportation corporations law, in relation to the
  construction of pipe lines


  Section  1.    Section  87  of  the transportation corporations law is
amended to read as follows:
  S 87. Construction through villages, TOWNS and cities.  No  pipe  line
shall  be  constructed into or through any incorporated village, TOWN or
city in this state, unless authorized by a  resolution  prescribing  the
route, manner of construction and terms upon which granted, adopted at a
regular  meeting of the board of trustees of the village, TOWN BOARD, or
the legislative body of the city by a two-thirds vote thereof, but  such
resolution  shall  not  affect  any  private right. No pavement shall be
removed in any city under the provisions  of  this  article,  except  as
directed  by  the legislative body, nor until the corporation seeking to
remove the same shall give a bond in such sum as  the  legislative  body
may require for relaying of any pavements removed.  In case any pavement
shall  have  been removed and not properly relaid, the city may sue such
corporation, for the cost of relaying such pavement.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
