[HISTORY: Adopted by the Council of the City of Beacon 5-4-1998 by L.L. No. 4-1998. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Zoning — See Ch. 223.
The petition of Elsie J. Burke complies with the requirements of Article 17 of the General Municipal Law and is found to have been properly executed by a qualified person.
Editor's Note: Said petition is on file in the office of the City Clerk.
The public hearing on this petition reveals no credible evidence that the annexation is not in the overall public interest.
Both the City of Beacon and the Town of Fishkill finds the annexation to be in the overall public interest and in the interests of the City and the town, respectively, and of the owner of the land that is subject to the annexation petition in that:
The annexation will facilitate the subdivision of property sought by the owner, Elsie J. Burke;
The annexation will ensure coverage by the Beacon Fire Department which has access to the subject premises via Depyster Avenue;
Property taxes due to the City and the town will be adjusted pro rata to account for the change of taxable status after the taxable status date as that term is defined in the Real Property Tax Law.
Pursuant to § 714 of the General Municipal Law, a public hearing is not required prior to enactment of this local law.
The zoning designation of this annexed area shall be Residential 1, 40,000 square feet (R1-40).
The annexation described in the petition (Exhibit A) is approved; and it is ordered that the consent approval of the City Council of the City of Beacon is hereby granted to the annexation of the area described in the petition (Exhibit A).
