CT Gen Stat § 7-403 (2012) What's This?

Any municipality which has accepted, assumed or received or which holds or manages any trust fund under the provisions of section 7-148 or 11-20 or other provisions of the general statutes may place such funds in a custodian account with the trust department of any qualified public depository which has been designated as a depositary of funds of such municipality under the provisions of section 7-402 and may prescribe the method of supervision of the investment and reinvestment of such funds. Such action shall be by vote of (1) the board of selectmen in a town that does not have a charter, special act or home rule ordinance relating to its government; (2) the council, board of aldermen, representative town meeting, board of selectmen or other elected legislative body described in a charter, special act or home rule ordinance relating to the government in a city, consolidated town and city, consolidated town and borough or a town having a charter, special act or home rule ordinance relating to its government; (3) the regional board of education in a regional school district; (4) the board of burgesses or other elected legislative body in a borough; or (5) the district, committee or other elected legislative body in a district, metropolitan district or other municipal corporation. Any gift, devise or bequest to any official, board, commission or agency of any municipality in trust for the benefit of such municipality, or any agency thereof, shall, except as otherwise provided by law, be construed to be a gift, devise or bequest to such town as trustee.

History: P.A. 95-403 added provision enumerating authorities responsible for the vote prescribing supervision of investment and reinvestment of funds, effective July 6, 1995, provided “any designation of a depository of public funds of the state or any municipality or regional school district, and any prescription of the method of supervision of the investment and reinvestment of trust funds of a municipality, made in accordance with the applicable provisions of sections 4-33, 7-401, 7-402, 7-403, subsection (c) of section 10-52 or subsection (d) of section 10-56 in effect on or before July 6, 1995, shall remain in effect until rescinded or otherwise modified in accordance with the provisions of public act 95-282” (Revisor’s note: The reference to “Sec. 10-52” appears to be a clerical error since Subsec. (c) of Sec. 10-51 was amended by Sec. 5 of P.A. 95-282); P.A. 96-244 revised effective date section of P.A. 95-282 but without affecting this section; (Revisor’s note: In 1999, the word “aldermen” was substituted for the word “alderman” in Subdiv. (2) to correct an inaccurate reference).
