(ii) In addition to the foregoing, the town of Frankfort is hereby authorized to issue bonds in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed two hundred eighty-six thousand dollars ($286,000) for the purpose of liquidating its further town wide general fund deficit projected to ist at the close of its fiscal year ending December 31, 1992, due, among other things, to overestimation of revenues and underestimation of penditures at the time of the formulation of the budget for such fiscal year.

(iii) As provided herein, in anticipation of the issuance of the bonds authorized to be issued by this act, bond anticipation notes are hereby authorized to be issued.

(b) Such towns shall not issue said bonds or bond anticipation notes unless or until the existence of the deficits referred to in paragraph (a) of this section, and the amounts thereof, are confirmed by the state comptroller, and the aggregate amounts thereof so financed by each town shall not exceed the amount of each such respective deficit, as so confirmed by the state comptroller, plus amounts referred to in the last sentence of paragraph (b), of section five of this act, and any other preliminary and/or incidental costs referred to in paragraph a of tion 11.00 of the local finance law. The appropriate officials of the towns shall provide, or shall cause to be provided, to the state comptroller such data and information as may be requested by the state comptroller to confirm the existence of said deficits and amounts thereof. Within sixty, days after receiving such information and data, the state comptroller shall perform such reviews as may be necessary to confirm the existence of said deficits and the amounts thereof and advise said towns of the results of such reviews. Upon receipt of such confirmations, obligations may be issued by the towns not in excess of the amounts so confirmed.

§ 2. It is hereby determined that the financing of the deficits hereinbefore described is an object or purpose of said towns for which indebtedness may be incurred, the period of probable usefulness of which is hereby determined to be ten years, computed from the date of the aforesaid bonds issued by each respective town or from the date of the first bond anticipation note issued by each respective town in anticipation of the sale of such bonds, whichever date is earlier; provided, however, that if the proceeds of said bonds,

or

of bond anticipation notes issued in anticipation thereof,

applied

in the manner authorized in section three of this act, such period of probable useful

shall be computed from the date of the revenue anticipation notes referred to in said section three. Such bonds and bond anticipation notes shall be general obligations of the issuer, to which the faith and credit thereof is pledged, and said issuer shall make an annual appropriation sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on such obligations as the same shall become due.

5 3. The computation of the amount of the aforesaid deficits may take account of the issuance by said towns during their fiscal years ended December 31, 1991, of revenue anticipation notes maturing during their fiscal years ending December 31, 1992, the proceeds of which

applied for the payment of expenditures' in connection with the Mohawk Valley General Hospital, in such manner as the state comptroller may

deem appropriate. To the extent that the same are taken into account for such purpose, the proceeds of the bonds herein authorized, or of any bond anticipation notes issued in anticipation thereof, may be used to redeem said revenue anticipation notes.

§ 4. Nothing herein shall preclude or limit the financing by said towns of any judgments, compromised or settled claims, awards or similar sums payable with respect to the operation or affairs of the Mohawk Val, ley General Hospital as a public general hospital jointly

owned and operated by said towns, including, without limitation, the cessation of the operation of the same, to the extent that said towns have the power to do so pursuant to provisions of law other than this act.

§ 5. To facilitate the marketing of any issue of bonds of the town of Frankfort or the town of German Flatts, issued on or before December 31, 1993, such towns respectively,, may, notwithstanding any limitations on private sales of bonds provided by law and subject to approval by the state comptroller of the terms and conditions of such sale:

(a) arrange for the underwriting of their bonds at private sale through negotiated agreement, compensation for such underwriting to be provided by negotiated fee or by sale of such bonds to an underwriter at a price less than the sum of par value of, and the accrued interest on, such bonds; or
