SECTION 1299-Q
Station operation and maintenance
Public Authorities (PBA) CHAPTER 43-A, ARTICLE 5, TITLE 11-A
§ 1299-q. Station operation and maintenance. The operation,
maintenance and use of passenger stations shall be public purposes of
the counties of Erie and Niagara. The total cost to the authority and
each of its subsidiary corporations of operation, maintenance and use of
each passenger station within the district serviced by one or more
railroad facilities of the authority or of such subsidiary corporation,
including the buildings, appurtenances, platforms, lands and approaches
incidental or adjacent thereto, shall be borne by the county within the
district in which such station is located. On or before June first of
each year, the authority shall determine and certify to the counties of
Erie and Niagara the total cost to the authority and its subsidiary
corporations, for the twelve-month period ending the preceding March
thirty-first, of operation, maintenance and use of each such passenger
station within each county, respectively. On or before the following
September first, of each year, each such county shall pay to the
authority such cost so certified to it on or before the preceding June
first. If for any such twelve-month period the authority determines that
the total revenues of any railroad facility will be such as not to
require payment for the full amount of the costs of operation,
maintenance and use of the passenger stations served by such facility,
the authority in its discretion may reduce by a uniform percentage of
established costs the amounts required of each county so served,
provided however, that the amount required of any such county shall not
be reduced for any such twelve-month period below the total cost to the
authority and its subsidiary corporations so certified of maintenance
and use of such passenger stations so served in such county. Each county
shall have power to finance such costs to it by the issuance of budget
notes pursuant to section 29.00 of the local finance law.
