§ 72-e. Acquisition of lands for park and parkway purposes and
dedication of the same by the counties of Broome, Monroe and Erie. The
board of supervisors of the county of Broome, Monroe or Erie may acquire
by purchase, gift, devise or acquisition pursuant to the provisions of
the eminent domain procedure law, real estate or any interest therein
necessary for or incidental to the construction of a state park,
parkway, or boulevard or incidental to the separation of grades at the
intersection of the state parkway or boulevard and a county, town or
village road, highway or street, and may donate or dedicate the same to
the state or may release to the state for such purpose existing rights
of way or easements not required for county purposes. The board of
supervisors of said county of Broome, Monroe or Erie may cause such
moneys as may be required to pay for real estate or interest therein so
acquired to be raised, in whole or in part, by taxation and levied and
collected as other taxes in such county or such moneys may be raised, in
whole or in part, pursuant to the local finance law. In the event
involuntary proceedings are had to acquire lands for the above purposes,
then, and in that case, upon the vesting of the title to the lands
described in the petition as provided in the eminent domain procedure
law said lands may be conveyed by warranty deed for a nominal
consideration by said county to the people of the state of New York, if
and when it becomes necessary to make such conveyance to effect the
