An Act Relative to the South Hadley Fire District Number Two.

 

              Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to redefine the boundaries of Fire District Number Two in the Towns of South Hadley and Granby, therefore, it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
 

              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
 

              Section 1.   The limits and authority of Fire District Number Two in the Towns of South Hadley and Granby, as established under chapter 239 of the acts of 1909, and as its limits and authority were extended, corrected or altered by chapter 529 of the acts of 1909, chapters 82 and 351 of the acts of 1931, chapter 127 of the acts of 1949, chapter 498 of the acts of 1954, and chapter 35 of the acts of 1957, shall, notwithstanding the provisions of the above-referenced acts or of any other general or special law to the contrary, be further amended to exclude the following locations in the Town of Granby from the fire protection services provided by said district:  Aldrich Street, Amherst Road (East Side); Burnett Street; Lyn Drive; Dian Street; Jackielyn Circle; Oak Drive; Graystone Avenue; Woodside Terrace; Lakeview Avenue; and Amherst Street, numbers 375, 383, 385 and 387.  Said district shall continue to provide water services to said streets and addresses in a manner consistent with the provision of water services to all other streets and addresses in the district.

              Section 2.  When a tax is duly voted by said district for the costs related to provision of such water services, to include water and capital improvements and repairs necessary and related thereto, the district clerk shall apportion, in accordance with the valuation of property situated in each part of said district, all and singular, such sums of money voted to be raised for such purposes, as well as for the purposes specified in chapters 239 and 529 of the acts of 1909, chapter 127 of the acts of 1949, chapter 498 of the acts of 1954, and chapter 34 of the acts of 1957, and shall render a certified copy of the vote, with the apportionment made by said clerk, to the assessors of South Hadley and Granby.   Said tax shall be assessed, collected and deposited in accordance with the provisions of chapter 529 of the acts of 1909.   Provided, further, however, that the streets and street addresses referenced in section 1 of this act shall not be assessed any part of the tax voted by the district for fire protection services.

              Section 3.  The district and towns of South Hadley and Granby may enter into an intermunicipal agreement consistent with the provisions of section 4A of chapter 40, as may be needed from time to time, to further implement the provisions of this act.

              Section 4.  This act shall take effect upon passage.
