N.Y. Public Authorities Law Section 2642-G
Cooperation and assistance of other agencies


To avoid duplication of effort and in the interests of economy, the authority may make use of existing studies, surveys, plans, data and other materials in the possession of any state agency or any municipality or political subdivision of the state. Each such agency, municipality or subdivision located in or serving some portion of the state is hereby authorized to make the same available to the authority and otherwise to assist it in the performance of its functions. At the request of the authority, each such agency, municipality or subdivision located in or serving some portion of the state which is engaged in railroad or other transportation activities or in land use or development planning, or which is charged with the duty of providing or regulating any transportation facility or any other public facility, is further authorized to provide the authority with information regarding its plans and programs affecting railroad transportation within the participating counties so that the authority may have available to it current information with respect thereto. The officers and personnel of such agencies, municipalities or subdivisions, and of any other government or agency whatever, may serve at the request of the authority upon such advisory committees as the authority shall determine to create and such officers and personnel may serve upon such committees without forfeiture of office or employment and with no loss or diminution in the compensation, status, rights and privileges which they otherwise enjoy.


Notwithstanding any contrary provision of law, every municipality located in the counties of Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Allegany or Steuben is authorized and empowered to consent to the use by the authority of any real or personal property owned by any such municipality and necessary, convenient or desirable in the opinion of the authority for any of the facilities or projects authorized under this title, including such real property as has already been devoted to a public use, and as an incident to such consent, to lease or otherwise transfer and convey to the authority any such real or personal property upon such terms as may be determined by the authority and any such municipality. Every such municipality also is authorized and empowered, as an incident to such consent, to vest in the authority the control, possession, operation, maintenance, rents, charges and any and all other revenues of any facilities now owned by any such municipality, the title to such facilities remaining in such municipality.
