A10736 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10736
 
SPONSOR: Rules (Buttenschon)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the highway law, in relation to authorizing the town of Deerfield in Oneida county to transfer jurisdiction of a road to the state   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To allow the Town of Deerfield to transfer responsibility of the road known as the southbound access road to New York State.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Amends subdivision 31 of section 341 of the highway law to authorize and direct the commissioner to assume jurisdiction for state highway purposes over the road identified as the southbound service road and associated ramp sections built under New York state department of transportation contract D250071. Section 2. Authorizes the commissioner of transportation and the town of Deerfield to permanently close such portions of the highway transferred to the state as necessary. Section 3. Transfers all right, title and interest of the town of Deer- field in the transferred highways to the state. Section 4. Sets the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: This bill would alleviate the burden of maintenance for the town of Deerfield of the road known as the southbound service road. The road runs adjacent to existing roads maintained by the state, and serves as an access road to land owned by the State University of New York. This road is a significant inconvenience for the town of Deerfield both financially and logistically. Therefore, it would seem reasonable for the state to assume responsibility for the southbound access road, espe- cially because the state maintains the roadways and ramps that run parallel and adjacent to the road in question.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2017-18 - Passed Senate/Transportation Committee in Assembly.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediate.

    23  highways to the state. Furthermore, the state acquisition of such  prop-
