An Act to Return a Certain Parcel of Land to Hartland from Pittsfield
Mandate preamble. This measure requires one or more local units of government to expand or modify activities so as to necessitate additional expenditures from local revenues but does not provide funding for at least 90% of those expenditures. Pursuant to the Constitution of Maine, Article IX, Section 21, two thirds of all of the members elected to each House have determined it necessary to enact this measure.
Emergency preamble. Whereas, Acts of the Legislature do not become effective until 90 days after adjournment unless enacted as emergencies; and
Whereas, this legislation returns to the Town of Hartland from the Town of Pittsfield a parcel of land that was originally part of the Town of Hartland; and
Whereas, the residents of that parcel have received municipal services from the Town of Hartland and wish to continue to receive those services and to pay taxes to that town; and
Whereas, the Town of Hartland and the Town of Pittsfield support the transfer; and
Whereas, in the judgment of the Legislature, these facts create an emergency within the meaning of the Constitution of Maine and require the following legislation as immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety; now, therefore,
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:
Sec. 1. P&SL 1852, c. 509 is repealed.
