Chairman of the Public Works and Capital Projects Committee, Dean J. Fabiano, and

Deputy Chairman Peter M. Loughran offer the following:


WHEREAS, the County of Ulster owns certain property in the Town of New

Paltz, more particularly described in Schedule A annexed hereto (the “Property”),

which was originally acquired and used for the provision of water to the County

Home; and

WHEREAS, pursuant to Resolution No. 219, dated July 11, 1991 (the

“Resolution”), due to the closing and ultimate demolition of the County Home, the

Legislature determined that the Property was no longer necessary for a public

purpose; and

WHEREAS, the Legislature resolved that the Property should be “sold to the

highest bidder by the County Treasurer after public advertisement of such sale;” and

WHEREAS, the sale of the Property did not occur and the Property is still

County owned and no longer needed for County purposes; and

 WHEREAS, the City of New York has an aqueduct on the Property and has

an interest in acquiring the Property in order to maintain its aqueduct; and

WHEREAS, pursuant to §72-h of General Municipal Law (the “Statute”), the

County is permitted to transfer public property, with or without consideration, to

another municipality; and

WHEREAS, a transfer of the Property to the City of New York would serve a

public purpose and is within the provisions of the Statute; and

WHEREAS, in accordance with both the provisions of the State

Environmental Quality Review Act, 6 NYCRR Part 627 (SEQRA), and the County

of Ulster's SEQRA Type II List, adopted by Resolution No. 118 on April 20, 2010,

the Ulster County Legislature has examined the transfer and has determined such to

be an unlisted action with no significant impact on the environment; now, therefore,

be it 


RESOLVED, that the Ulster County Legislature affirms the Resolution,

finding that the Property is indeed surplus and is no longer needed for a public

purpose; and it is further

RESOLVED, that the Chairman of the Ulster County Legislature is hereby

authorized to execute all documents, agreements, and related paperwork necessary to

transfer the Property to the City of New York, in fee,

and moves its adoption.
