AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE LEASE OF CERTAIN PARCELS OF LAND IN THE TOWN OF MILTON.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
The town of Milton, acting by and through its board of
selectmen, is hereby authorized to lease all or a portion of certain parcels of
land located in said town for a term not to exceed 50 years for public or
private recreational purposes; provided, however, that any such lease agreement
contains provisions for the construction of at least two athletic fields or
courts at no cost to said town, and that the leased land shall revert to said
town if said land is used for any purposes not permitted by this act. Said
parcels are that land known as the town of Milton sanitary landfill and land
abutting said landfill acquired or to be acquired by said town. Said land
acquired by the town of Milton is shown on town of Milton Assessors' maps as
Map I, Block 38C, Lots 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19, Map I, Block 38D,
Lots 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10B, Map I, 38E, Lots 1 and 2; and Map I, Block 6,
Lots 63, 64 and 65; and as Access Road and Ash Street, so called. Said land
to be acquired by the town of Milton is shown on town of Milton Assessors' maps
as Map I, Block 38C, Lot 20.
Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law to the contrary,
said town, acting by and through its board of selectmen, may utilize
the provisions of paragraphs (b) to (i), inclusive, of section 6 of
chapter 30B of the General Laws in lieu of the provisions of section 39M of
chapter 30 of the General Laws for the issuance of a request for proposals and
to contract for the closure and post closure use of the town's sanitary
landfill. Said board may enter into procurement contracts therefor in the
amount of $10,000 or more utilizing competitive sealed proposals. Said board
shall determine in writing that selection of the most advantageous offer
requires comparative judgments of factors in addition to price, specifying the
reasons for its determination. The action of said board in issuing a request
for proposals therefor and in giving public notice of said request for
proposals is hereby ratified, validated and confirmed.
Nothing in this act authorizes land or easements acquired
for the purposes of Article XCVII of the Amendments to the Constitution to be
used for other purposes or otherwise disposed of.
All actions taken by the board of selectmen of the town of
Milton with regard to the closing, capping and post closure development of the
town of Milton landfill are hereby ratified, validated and confirmed in all
respects, and as though this act had been in full force and effect at the time
of such actions.
This act shall take effect upon its passage.
