An Act authorizing the Town of West Boylston to establish a municipal building fund and a municipal building committee.


 

              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.   Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law to the contrary, the Town of West Boylston shall carry over from year to year amounts appropriated for the maintenance and repair of non-school buildings owned by the Town, which amounts remain unexpended for such purposes at the end of each fiscal year, to be held by the Town Treasurer in a separate account, to be known as the Municipal Buildings Fund, and may be expended in accordance with this act without further appropriation for the maintenance, repair or capital improvement of any municipal building.  The non-school annual budget to be voted upon by the West Boylston Town Meeting shall contain a separate item for the maintenance and repair of each non-school building owned by the Town.

SECTION 2.               Said town of West Boylston may appropriate to said fund by a two thirds vote at an annual or special town meeting in any year an amount not exceeding one half of one percent of the amount raised in the preceding fiscal year by taxation of real estate and tangible personal property. The aggregate amount of said fund at any time shall not exceed one tenth of one percent of the equalized valuation of said town of West Boylston as defined in section 1 of chapter 44 of the General Laws. Any interest shall be added to and become a part of said fund.

SECTION 3.               A five-member board to be known as the Municipal Buildings Committee is hereby established, whose members shall be the Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, the Chairman of the Finance Committee, the Chairman of the Board of Library Trustees, or their designees, all of whom shall serve ex officio, and two registered voters of the Town of West Boylston who are members of neither the Board of Selectmen, the Finance Committee, nor the Board of Library Trustees of the Town of West Boylston, to be appointed by the Town Administrator for a three-year term.

SECTION 4.               Expenditures from the Municipal Buildings Fund shall only be made by a two-thirds vote of all of the members of the Municipal Buildings Committee.

SECTION 5.   This act shall take effect upon its passage.
