[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Massena 8-7-1979 by L.L. No. 5-1979. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Board of Trustees of the Village of Massena, New York, has for the past several years equipped, operated and maintained playgrounds, ice rinks, baseball diamonds and other recreation centers for the use and enjoyment of its citizens. The growth and development of said recreation program is such that it now requires the attention of a commission to supervise, plan and expand its program.
The Town of Massena Town Board has, by written agreement with the Village of Massena, covenanted to establish a Joint Recreation Commission pursuant to § 244-d of the General Municipal Law and a Joint Recreation Commission shall be established, which shall possess all the powers and be subject to all the responsibilities of local authorities under Article 13 of the General Municipal Law.
The fiscal year for the Joint Recreation Commission shall commence June 1 and terminate on May 31 of each year hereafter, to continue so long as the joint agreement shall remain in effect.
[Amended 9-4-2001 by L.L. No. 2-2001]
In February of each year, the Joint Recreation Commission shall present a budget for consideration. Upon approval of the budget, the contributions by the Village of Massena shall be prorated based on current assessment rolls or by a similar method approved the the Village Board.
