 with respect to the 2018-2019 school taxes for Steuben Land  Associates,

 addition to the correction authorized by this act, the town shall relevy
 such school taxes for the year in which such clerical error was made.

 ical error described in section one of this act.

 priated, and made immediately available, for the purpose of carrying out
 the provisions of section two of this act. Such moneys shall be  payable
