SECTION 849
Appropriations for conservation purposes in Washington county
County (CNT) CHAPTER 11, ARTICLE 23
§ 849. Appropriations for conservation purposes in Washington county.
1. The board of supervisors of Washington county is hereby authorized
and empowered to enter into an agreement or agreements with the board of
supervisors of one or more adjoining counties possessing equivalent
powers for the joint construction or acquisition, maintenance and
control of facilities for the promotion and conservation of fish, game
and other natural resources, and may annually appropriate and expend
such sums as may be necessary pursuant to such agreement. The agreement
may provide for the method of acquisition or construction of the
facility, the management and operation thereof; the method of fixing the
proportionate share of each county and of making contributions; the
custody of moneys; the audit of claims; the duration of the agreement;
and such other matters as may be appropriate in the circumstances. The
agreement shall have a maximum duration of ten years, but such
limitation shall not prohibit successive agreements. Nothing herein
contained shall prevent the financing of the county's share of a project
pursuant to the provisions of the local finance law.

2. The board of supervisors of Washington county is hereby authorized
and empowered to annually appropriate moneys to defray such portion of
the cost of maintenance of a fish screen in Ticonderoga creek between
Lake George and Lake Champlain, heretofore constructed and now
maintained by the Lake George Screen Committee, Incorporated, as such
board may see fit. Moneys so appropriated shall be held in the custody
of the county treasurer and paid out by him only upon order of the board
of supervisors after due and proper audit and allowance. The board of
supervisors is hereby authorized to enter into such agreement with the
Lake George Screen Committee, Incorporated, as may be deemed necessary
to effectuate the provisions of this subdivision.

3. Nothing herein contained shall be deemed to supersede, alter or
abridge the powers and duties of the department of conservation, or any
division, agency or officer of said department, or to deprive said
department, or any division, agency or officer thereof of jurisdiction
now or hereafter conferred upon it in relation to conservation matters.
