  • Chapter 129 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE TOWN OF BELMONT TO ESTABLISH A SENIOR CENTER FURNISHINGS AND ACCESSORIES AND OPERATIONS FUND.

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. Upon the recommendation of the selectmen and approval of the town meeting, the town of Belmont may design and designate a place on its municipal tax bills or the motor vehicle excise tax bills, or may mail with such tax bills a separate form, whereby the taxpayers of said town may voluntarily check off, donate and pledge an amount not less than $1 or such other designated amount which shall increase the amount otherwise due. Upon this recommendation and approval, the town may establish a Town Senior Center Furnishing and Accessories and Operations Fund for the purpose of helping to defray the expense of providing furnishings and accessories and operations to the Belmont Senior Center.

Any amounts donated to the fund shall be deposited into a special account in the general treasury and shall be in the custody of the treasurer. The treasurer shall invest these funds subject to the same limitations that apply to trust fund investments. The fund, together with the interest earned thereon, shall be used for the purpose specified in this section without further appropriation.

SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage.

Approved November 9, 2001.
