The 191st General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE DIVISION OF CAPITAL ASSET MANAGEMENT AND MAINTENANCE TO GRANT TO THE TOWN OF BELCHERTOWN A CERTAIN PARCEL OF LAND IN THE TOWN OF BELCHERTOWN

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to  convey forthwith a certain parcel of land to the town of Belchertown, 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 32 to 37, inclusive, of chapter 7C of the General Laws or any other general or special law to the contrary, the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance may convey to the town of Belchertown, for no or nominal consideration, a certain parcel of land for public way purposes in connection with the alteration of the layouts of Boardman road and George Hannum street.  The parcel of land authorized to be conveyed contains approximately 7,026 square feet, is a portion of the premises acquired by the commonwealth by deed recorded with the Hampshire county registry of deeds in book 722, Page 107, and shown on a plan entitled “Plan of Land in Belchertown, MA Prepared for Town of Belchertown (applicant) Dept. of Public Works,” dated June 17, 2014, prepared by Sherman & Frydryk, and held in the offices of the division of capital asset management and maintenance.
        SECTION 2.  Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the town of Belchertown shall be responsible for all costs and expenses of the conveyance authorized in section 1 as determined by the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance, including, without limitation, the costs of any surveys and recordings.
