TOWN BOARD TOWN OF NEW CASTLE
RESOLUTION REPEALING APPROVAL RESOLUTION FOR THE CHAPPAQUA TRAIN STATION LEASE

Council Member Katz moved, seconded by Council Member Chapin to approve the following resolution;

WHEREAS, by Resolution adopted on May 20, 2014 (the "Approval Resolution"), the Town Board authorized the Town Supervisor to execute a Lease Agreement with Love at 10514, LLC; and

WHEREAS, pursuant to Town Law § 90, the Approval Resolution was subject to a permissive referendum; and

WHEREAS, on June 18, 2014, a Petition for a Permissive Referendum on the Approval Resolution was filed with the Town Clerk of the Town of New Castle; and

WHEREAS, the Town Board has concluded that rather than contest the Permissive Referendum's validity, the interests of its residents will be best-served by repealing its Approval Resolution and reopening the application process for a lease award; and

WHEREAS, the Town Board has the authority to repeal the Approval Resolution pursuant to Town Law § 93, which statutory provision was expressly incorporated in its Lease Agreement with Love at 10514, LLC;

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Town Board's Approval Resolution is hereby repealed pursuant to Town Law § 93, and that by operation of law, the Town's Lease Agreement with Love at 10514, LLC is rescinded; and it is

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Town Administrator is directed to publish an RFP for leasing the Chappaqua Train Station in substantially the same form as the RFP that the Town published on March 19, 2014; and it is

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Board invites all prior applicants for leasing the Chappaqua Train Station to resubmit their proposals for consideration.
