Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
Notwithstanding chapters 80 and 83 of the General Laws or
any other general or special law to the contrary, the city of Gloucester may
assess sewer betterment charges to properties which abut a public sewer
constructed by means of any intermunicipal agreement between the city of
Gloucester and the towns of Essex or Rockport, even if the public sewer

town of Rockport. Any such assessment shall not exceed the amount of the
adjudged benefit as provided in section 1 of chapter 80 of the General Laws.
In the case of the Essex intermunicipal agreement, the benefit shall be
