unappropriated state land at the Industrial Residential Center in the town of

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the commissioner of general
services to transfer and convey certain unappropriated state land to
PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill is to transfer state property at
the Industry Residential Center in the town of Rush to the county of
Monroe for the use of the county's certified juvenile detention
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one of the bill authorizes the commissioner of general
services to transfer and convey to the county of Monroe, the state
property at the Industry Residential Center in the town of Rush by no
less than fifty-one percent of the total expenditures of the state in
rehabilitating the premises for occupancy by the county of Monroe.
Section two of the bill provides the coordinates and physical details
of the parcel of land to be transferred.
Section three compels the county of Monroe to submit an accurate
survey and description of the land.
Section four gives one year for the county of Monroe to apply for the
transfer to the state.
Section five details the restrictions and reverter for the county of
Monroe to maintain in order to permit this transfer and conveyance.
Section six is the effective date.
JUSTIFICATION: The county of Monroe is in need of a new facility to
house its juvenile detention center. The Office of Children and Family
Services, along with Office of General Services have been working with
the county to find a suitable facility for the county's needs that
would be cost-efficient and provide for a swift transition. This
state-owned facility is not currently being utilized, and would meet
both the county and state's standards after rehabilitating the premise
for a juvenile detention center. All parties have worked together to
support this transfer and this legislation seeks to put into statute
the transfer and conveyance of the land, providing for certain
restrictions where the state may reclaim the land should the county of
Monroe not meet specific regulations.
LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New legislation.
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the state.
EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
