    6  in  accordance with the procedures set forth in subdivision 2 of section
    7  170 of the town law, shall have the power to extend the Town  of  Mohawk
    8  Fire  District,  located  in the town of Mohawk to include and encompass

   11  authorized  by section one of this act, the Town of Mohawk Fire District
   12  in the town as extended  shall  be  a  fire  district  governed  by  the
   13  provisions  of article 11 of the town law, and the board of fire commis-
   14  sioners of such fire district shall have all of the  powers  and  duties
   15  vested  in  and imposed on boards of fire commissioners by article 11 of

       A. 8305--A                          2

    1  continued presence in  the  village  of  Fonda  shall  not  render  such
    2  district  corporation  to  be  the  fire department of such village, nor
    3  shall it render such district corporation to be under the control of the
    4  village authorities.
    5    S  4.  The completion by the town of Mohawk of the proceedings author-

    8  2  of  section  170  of the town law; provided, however, that nothing in
    9  this act shall be construed as relieving the town of Mohawk from comply-
   10  ing with the provisions of subdivision 1 of section 173 of the town law.
