SECTION 280-I
Application to the department of audit and control
County (CNT) CHAPTER 11, ARTICLE 5-B
§ 280-i. Application to the department of audit and control. Whenever
a resolution approving the establishment of a county district shall have
become effective, the clerk of the governing body shall file an
application in the office of the department of audit and control for
permission to establish the district. Such application shall be executed
and verified by the chairman of the governing body or such other officer
as the governing body may designate and be in such form and contain such
information as may be prescribed by the state comptroller. The state
comptroller may require the submission of additional information or data
in such form and detail as he shall deem sufficient, or may cause an
investigation to be made to aid him in making the determinations below
mentioned. Upon such application and such other information, data and
material which may be submitted, the state comptroller shall determine
whether the public interest will be served by the creation of the
district and also whether the cost thereof will be an undue burden upon
the property of the proposed district. If such resolution shall have
provided for the establishment of zones of assessment and the allocation
of the costs of the facilities as between such zones of assessment, the
state comptroller shall further determine whether the cost of the
facilities allocated to each of said zones of assessment will be an
undue burden upon the property of each proposed zone of assessment.

Upon completion of his examination of the application and
investigation of the project, the state comptroller shall make an order,
in duplicate, granting or denying permission for the establishment of
the district and shall file one copy of such order in the office of the
state department of audit and control at Albany, New York, and the other
in the office of the clerk of the governing body of the county in which
the proposed district is located. The clerk of the governing body shall
present such order to the governing body at the next meeting thereof. If
the state comptroller shall deny permission for the establishment of the
district, no further proceedings shall be taken in the matter. If the
state comptroller shall grant permission for the establishment of the
district, the governing body may adopt an order establishing the
district.
