Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to authorize forthwith the conveyance of a certain parcel of state-owned land in the city of Salem, 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. Notwithstanding sections 33 to 37, inclusive, of chapter 7C of the General Laws, section 20 of chapter 304 of the acts of 2008 or any other general or special law to the contrary, the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance shall, upon the approval of the Salem Redevelopment Authority, convey a certain parcel of state-owned land with the building thereon located in the city of Salem to the Salem Redevelopment Authority. The parcel and building is located at 65 Washington street and is the site of the Salem district court building.
SECTION 2. Consideration for the conveyance described in section 1 shall be $1, payable, at the time of the conveyance. Upon any subsequent sale of the property or any portion thereof by the Salem Redevelopment Authority, the Salem Redevelopment Authority shall pay the net proceeds of such sale to the commonwealth.
SECTION 3. The Salem Redevelopment Authority shall bear all costs, if any, for the transactions authorized in this act including, but not limited to, all costs for legal work, survey, title and preparation of plans and specifications; provided, however, that any costs and expenses incurred by the Salem Redevelopment Authority to sell the property shall be paid from the gross proceeds of the sale.
