[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Poughkeepsie 9-5-2007 by L.L. No. 15-2007. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The purpose of this chapter is to allow a Town Board to execute a lease for recreational purposes as lessee for a term greater than the term of the current Town Board.
The Town Board will determine on a case-by-case basis what is the most appropriate term to be utilized in its negotiations as a lessee involving leases for recreational purposes, and said term may exceed the term of the Town Board.
This chapter will not be applicable to any lease involving dedicated park land.
This chapter supersedes the Town Board's power to contract as set forth in § 64 of the Town Law which limits, in certain cases, the power to enter into a contract that exceeds the term of said Town Board.
This chapter does curtail the powers of future Town Boards, and therefore, pursuant to the provisions of the New York State Constitution, Article IX, § 1, Subdivision [h], Paragraph , and Municipal Home Rule Law § 34, Subdivision 4, is subject to a permissive referendum.
