SECTION 2350-F
Special powers of the county
Public Authorities (PBA) CHAPTER 43-A, ARTICLE 8, TITLE 16
§ 2350-f. Special powers of the county. 1. The county is hereby
authorized, by a majority vote of the county legislature, subject to
review and veto of the county executive in the manner set forth in the
county charter, to sell, lease or assign to the agency any or all right,
title and interest of the county in and to the John P. Cohalen court
complex, the new replacement correctional facility at Yaphank and the H.
Lee Dennison building and the North County Complex, including, without
limitation, any land and rights-in-land, any buildings, structures and
improvements now or at any time hereafter erected or constructed upon
such land or rights-in-land, any fixtures attached thereto, any personal
property of any kind and description, whether the same is a structural
or nonstructural component, any alteration, replacements, additions or
substitutions for any of the foregoing, and any operation and
maintenance or functionally similar agreements, by any name known. Any
such sale, lease, or assignment may, notwithstanding the provisions of
any other law, general, special or local, including, without
limitations, section two hundred fifteen of the county law, or the
county charter, be upon such terms for such duration and upon such
conditions and for such consideration as may be agreed upon, without
competitive bidding therefor and shall not be subject to permissive or
mandatory referendum. Notwithstanding any other provision of law,
general, special or local, the county may lease back such properties
and, or, enter into a service agreement with the agency pursuant to
which the agency will cause the John P. Cohalen court complex, or any
part thereof, to be made available for occupancy for judicial purposes
and functions, the new replacement correctional facility at Yaphank to
be made available for occupancy and use for correction purposes and
functions, and the H. Lee Dennison building and the North County Complex
to be made available for occupancy and use for governmental purposes and
functions and for which the county will pay to the agency a fee, and
enter into an agreement with the agency pursuant to which the county
will operate and, or, maintain such court complex, such correctional
facility, and the H. Lee Dennison building and the North County Complex
for the agency, each upon such terms and for such duration and upon such
conditions and for such consideration as may be agreed upon and without
competitive bidding. It is hereby determined that the powers conferred
by this section shall be in addition and supplemental to any powers
contained in any other law and nothing herein contained shall be
construed as limiting a right or power that the county now has or may
hereafter have pursuant to any other provision of law. It is hereby
determined that the powers conferred by this section are conferred for a
public purpose and any sale, lease, assignment or other contract or
agreement entered into pursuant to the provisions of this section shall
be deemed to be and is herein determined to be for a public purpose.

2. The county shall have power to perform such other acts, to enter
into such other contracts, execute such instruments and to undertake
such future proceedings as shall be determined necessary or desirable to
effectuate the purpose of this title.

3. Any contract or agreement entered into pursuant to this section to
which the agency shall be a party may be pledged by the agency as
security for any issue of bonds, and may be assigned, in whole or in
part, by the agency.
