The Governor signed bill S 5858-B on 11/14/16, which relates to the sale of surplus real or personal property. The fire district may now sell or otherwise dispose of real and personal property of the district no longer necessary for any of its use or purposes if valued at less than $100,000 but not below $20,000 by resolution which will be subject to a permissive referendum. If the value of the real or personal property is less than $20,000 a proposition is not needed, simply a resolution of the Board to declare the property surplus. Over $100,000 a resolution by the Board and a voter referendum is required. The amounts in Section 176, subdivision 23 of Town law were previously $50,000 and $10,000.
