  • Chapter 246 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE DIVISION OF CAPITAL ASSET MANAGEMENT AND MAINTENANCE TO CONVEY A CERTAIN PARCEL OF LAND TO THE TOWN OF LEICESTER.

Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to convey forthwith a certain parcel of land to the town of Leicester, 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 commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance may, subject to section 40E to 40J, inclusive, of chapter 7 of the General Laws, to convey by a deed approved as to form by the attorney general, a certain parcel of land located in the town of Leicester, acquired for water supply purposes to said town of Leicester for construction and operation of a water treatment facility to be managed by the Moose Hill water commission. Said parcel is shown as Lot A on a plan of land entitled "Plan of land in Leicester, Mass." dated February 10, 1993 drawn by Due North Land Surveying Services which is on file in the office of the town clerk of said town.

SECTION 2. The consideration to be paid by the town of Leicester, to the commonwealth shall be the full and fair market value for said land described in section 1. Said full and fair market value shall be determined by the commissioner of the division of capital asset management and maintenance based upon an independent professional appraisal. The inspector general shall review and comment on said appraisal, and said review and comment shall include an examination of the methodology utilized for said appraisal. Said commissioner shall, 30 days prior to the conveyance authorized by this act, submit said appraisal and a report thereon to said inspector general. Said inspector general shall prepare a report of his review of said appraisal and file said report with said commissioner, and copies of the same shall be filed with the house and senate committees on ways and means and the chairmen of the joint committee on state administration. Said town of Leicester shall be responsible for any costs for appraisals, surveys, and other expenses relating to the conveyance of said land.

SECTION 3. If the land described in section 1 ceases to be used at any time for the purposes set forth in this act, said land shall revert to the care and control of the division of capital asset management and maintenance and any further disposition shall be subject to sections 40E to 40J, inclusive, of chapter 7 of the General Laws and to the prior approval of the general court.
