2006 New York Code - Sale Or Exchange Of Certain Detached Parcels Of Forest Preserve Lands.



 
    § 24. Sale  or exchange of certain detached parcels of forest preserve
  lands.  Any state department or agency, at the time having  jurisdiction
  over  any  of  the lands hereinafter specified, may consent to a sale or
  exchange by the commissioner of general services of  any  lands  of  the
  state,   now  owned  or  hereafter  acquired,  constituting  the  forest
  preserve, but outside of the Adirondack and Catskill parks as now  fixed
  by  law and not acquired or dedicated for the practice of forest or wild
  life conservation, and consisting in any  case  of  not  more  than  one
  hundred  contiguous  acres  entirely separated from any other portion of
  the  forest  preserve.    Upon  such  consent  being  filed   with   the
  commissioner in writing, accompanied by a description of such lands, the
  commissioner may in his discretion sell or exchange any of such lands in
  accordance with the consent.
    All  sales  shall  be  subject  to  and  governed by the provisions of
  sections  thirty-three,   thirty-five,   thirty-seven,   thirty-seven-a,
  thirty-eight,  thirty-eight-a  and  thirty-nine  of  this chapter, being
  general provisions governing the sale  of  unappropriated  state  lands.
  All  moneys  derived  by the commissioner from such sales, not including
  any refunds made pursuant to section twenty-six of this  law,  shall  be
  paid  first  to  repay  any  expenditures  made by the office of general
  services with relation to forest preserve lands from moneys appropriated
  to said office in the first instance for the administration, management,
  utilization and disposition of real property of the state and any rights
  or interests therein, and any balance of  such  moneys  remaining  after
  repayment  of  the first instance expenditures shall be paid through the
  office of general services into a special fund of  the  state  treasury,
  provided  for  that  purpose  by  the state finance law and known as the
  forest preserve expansion fund, and shall be expended only  as  provided
  in  that law.   All of such moneys received during any month shall be so
  paid on or before the fifteenth day of the succeeding month.
    All exchanges shall be  only  for  additional  lands  for  the  forest
  preserve  within  either the Adirondack or Catskill park as now fixed by
  law and shall be subject to approval by  the  attorney  general  of  the
  title to the lands thus to be acquired by the state.
