SECTION 72-B
Acquisition of lands and erection of memorial buildings
General Municipal (GMU) CHAPTER 24, ARTICLE 5
§ 72-b. Acquisition of lands and erection of memorial buildings. The
governing board of a town or village may acquire lands and erect a
memorial building, or lands with buildings thereon and remodel such
buildings as a memorial building or remove such buildings and erect a
memorial building, in commemoration of the services of the members of
the armed forces of the United States of the world war or any veteran
association of any of the wars of the United States, at a total cost not
to exceed one per centum of the assessed valuation of any such town or
village. If such expenditure is to be paid from taxes levied for the
fiscal year in which such expenditure is to be made, such expenditure
shall be made only upon the adoption of a proposition therefor by a
majority vote of the electors of any such town or village qualified to
vote upon the submission of propositions. Such proposition may be
submitted by the governing board and shall be submitted in the same
manner as other town or village propositions are submitted. Two or more
adjoining towns may, as herein provided, jointly acquire lands and erect
a memorial building in the manner and for the purposes herein specified.
A town and a village wholly within such town may, as herein provided,
jointly acquire lands and erect a memorial building in the manner and
for the purposes herein specified. Taxes levied for the town's share of
the cost of such acquisition and erection shall be a charge upon the
taxable property of that part of the town outside of such village, and
shall be assessed, levied and collected therefrom.
