    30  provided  by  the  four  library districts described in subdivisions (a)
    31  through (d) of this section.
    32    § 2. The town board of the town of Orangetown is hereby authorized  to
    33  raise  money  by tax for library purposes and to contract with the trus-
    34  tees of any free association library which has received a  charter  from
    35  the  board of regents of the university of the state of New York for the
    36  furnishing of library services  in  the  areas  comprising  the  library

    37  districts created by this act, under such terms and conditions as may be
    38  stated  in  such  contract.  Such tax shall be a charge upon the taxable
    39  property of the areas comprising such library districts as well  as  the
    40  Sparkill  area  delineated in subdivision (e) of section one of this act
    41  outside of the limits of any incorporated village. The town board  shall
    42  distribute  the  money  raised  by  tax in the Sparkill area to the four
    43  library districts in amounts proportionate to the use Sparkill residents
    44  make of each library as shown  by  the  number  of  residents  who  hold
    45  current library cards in each library.  Taxes voted for library purposes
    46  pursuant  to this section shall, unless otherwise directed by such vote,
    47  be considered as annual appropriations therefor until changed by further
    48  vote and shall be levied and collected yearly as are other general taxes

    49  in the town of Orangetown and shall be  subject  to  the  provisions  of
    50  section  3-c of the general municipal law, which places limits upon real
    51  property tax levies by local governments.  The amount agreed to be  paid
    52  to  a  free  association library for furnishing library services under a
    53  contract authorized by this section shall be paid directly to the treas-
    54  urer of such library.
    55    § 3. The free association libraries located in  the  areas  comprising
    56  the  library  districts created by this act shall individually submit on

        A. 9569--A                          5
 
     1  or before the twentieth day of September to the supervisor of  the  town
     2  of Orangetown a request for funds for each such free association library
     3  for  the  ensuing  year,  in  such  form and containing such information

     4  including  estimates  of  revenues  and  expenditures as such supervisor
     5  shall prescribe. The procedures of sections 106, 107,  108  and  109  of
     6  article  8 of the town law shall apply to the adoption of appropriations
     7  for library purposes in the annual budget of such  town,  provided  that
     8  the  appropriations  adopted  for  any  such library and the request for
     9  funds submitted on behalf of such library shall be based on the individ-
    10  ual needs for every such library; nothing in this  act  is  intended  to
    11  make  any  free association library subject to any provision of the town
    12  law applicable to an "administrative unit" of town government; and it is
    13  further provided, that the town board shall, within  the  parameters  of
    14  the  town  law,  be permitted to exercise its discretion with respect to
    15  total amount appropriations adopted for each  library  for  the  ensuing

    16  year.    The amount appropriated for each free association library shall
    17  be paid over to the treasurer of the library and shall be expended  only
    18  under the direction of the library trustees for lawful library purposes.
    19    §  4.  If on the effective date of this act the public library created
    20  pursuant to chapter 816 of the laws of  1961  has  not  transferred  any
    21  assets it may hold to a free association library or libraries located in
    22  the  library  districts created pursuant to section one of this act, the
    23  disposition of any such assets shall  be  determined  by  the  board  of
    24  regents  of  the university of the state of New York, provided, however,
    25  that any such assets shall to the extent possible be held in  trust  for
    26  transfer  forthwith  (a)  to  any  free  association library which shall
    27  subsequently be chartered by the board of regents of the  university  of

    28  the  state  of  New  York  in the areas comprising the library districts
    29  created by section one of this act, or (b) to any public library  estab-
    30  lished  pursuant  to section 255 of the education law to serve the South
    31  Orangetown Central School District Number One.
    32    § 5. Chapter 349 of the laws of 1973, relating to creating  a  library
    33  district  in  the  town  of  Orangetown  in  the  county of Rockland, is
    34  REPEALED.
