Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to forthwith authorize the conveyance of certain land to the town of Whitman, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
SECTION 1. The commissioner of the division of capital asset management and maintenance may convey to the town of Whitman, for nominal consideration notwithstanding sections 40F to 40J, inclusive, of chapter 7 of the General Laws or any other general or special law or rule or regulation to the contrary, by deed, a parcel of state-owned land located in the town, formerly under the care and control of the armory commission, for use by the town as a public safety facility. The parcel, as shown on a deed dated February 12, 1957, and recorded in the Plymouth county registry of deeds Book 2555 page 28, was conveyed from inhabitants of the town of Whitman to the commonwealth.
SECTION 2. The town of Whitman shall pay for all costs of the appraisal, survey and deed preparation for the conveyance of the property authorized by this act, as deemed necessary by the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance.
SECTION 3. If the property ceases to be used at any time for the purpose described in section 1, or is used for any purpose other than the purpose stated therein, the property, upon notice by the commissioner of the division of capital asset management and maintenance, shall revert to the care and control of the commonwealth and any further disposition of the property shall be subject to sections 40E to 40J, inclusive, of chapter 7 of the General Laws, and shall require the prior approval of the general court.
