Whereas, the deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to authorize forthwith the conveyance of certain land to the town of Milford, 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 convey to the town of Milford 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 upon acceptance by the board of selectmen of said town, a parcel of state-owned land located in said town, formerly under the care and control of the armory commission, for use by said town for municipal or any other public purpose, including the leasing of said property to not-for-profit organizations. The parcel, as shown on a deed dated May 27, 1911, and recorded in the Worcester district registry of deeds, Book 1970, Page 423. The exact boundaries of the parcel shall be determined by the commissioner in consultation with the military division after completion of a survey.
SECTION 2. The town of Milford shall pay for all costs of any survey and deed preparation for the conveyance of the property authorized by this act, as considered 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 in section 1, the property, upon notice by the commissioner 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.
