Section 1. Chapter thirty of the laws of nineteen hundred and 3201 nine, entitled "An act relating to highways, constituting chapter twenty-five of the consolidated laws," is hereby amended by ch. 30. inserting therein a new section to be section three hundred and twenty-j, to read as follows:
§ 320-j. Acquisition of lands for county aid highways in cities, villages and towns in certain counties. If in a county having a population of more than three hundred thousand according to the last federal or state census or enumeration, adjoining a city having a population of one million and upwards, a highway proposed to be constructed and improved provided by sections three hundred and twenty-a, three hundred and twenty-b and three hundred and twenty-c of this article
shall deviate from the line of a highway already existing, the governing body of any such municipality or municipalities in which such highway is, or the respective parts of such highway are located, shall provide the requisite right of way prior to the advertisement for proposals. The provisions of sections one hundred and forty-nine, one hundred and fifty, one hundred and fifty-one, one hundred and fifty-two, one hundred and fifty-three and one hundred and fifty-four of this chapter shall apply to such providing of right of way in the same manner as to providing right of way for state and county highways in so far as the same may be applicable thereto, except that any reference in any of said sections to the board of supervisors, the county treasurer or other county officer shall for the purposes of this section be construed to mean the governing body or similar officer of any such municipality. The cost of such lands either by purchase or condemnation, and the necessary expenses incurred for providing the same, as provided by this section shall be a charge against the municipality whose duty it is to acquire the same. Such costs and expenses may be included in the tax levied or paid out of the proceeds of certificates of indebtedness of such municipality to be issued as provided by this section. If the governing body of any such municipality deems it advisable to pay the same out of the proceeds of certificates of indebtedness of such municipality, such governing body shall thereupon estimate the cost of such lands, including the necessary expenses to be incurred in connection with the acquisition of same and make available the necessary moneys required therefor by the issuance from time to time of certificates of indebtedness to be payable out of the proceeds of bonds to be issued as provided by this section. In case it is found that the actual cost will exceed such estimated cost, the governing body of any such municipality may make such additional estimates of cost as it deems necessary and proper and shall appropriate and make immediately available any such additional estimates of cost in the same manner as the original estimate of cost. The governing body of any such municipality is hereby authorized and directed to issue from time to time bonds of such municipality to pay the estimated costs of such lands including the necessary expenses to be incurred in connection with the acquisition of same and to take up the certificates of indebtedness so issued or authorized issued, provided, however, that such governing body may provide for the payment of any such bonds within twenty years from their respective dates of issue. Such bonds shall be issued in the same manner as other bonds of any such municipality and the rate of interest of such bonds shall not exceed six per centum per annum. Such bonds shall be sold for not less than their par value, upon notice as provided by law and shall be signed by the officials who sign other bonds of such municipality and in the case of a town they shall be signed by the supervisor of such town, attested by the town clerk of said town, after affixing the seal of said town. It shall be the duty of the governing body of any such municipality to cause to be
raised annually by tax upon the taxable property of such municipality in the same manner as other taxes are levied and collected, a sufficient sum to pay the interest upon said certificates of indebtedness and bonds when and as the same become due and payable and also to raise by tax upon the taxable property of such municipality the moneys necessary to pay the principal of said bonds as the same shall become due.
