Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to convey forthwith certain land in the town of Tewksbury for sewer purposes, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
SECTION 1.

The easements are shown on a plan of land entitled "Plan of easements in Tewksbury, Mass. for Sewer Main Construction and Maintenance", dated May 17, 1993, drawn by William G. Troy and Associates, which is on file in the office of the board of selectmen of said town.
SECTION 2. The consideration paid by the Maple Estates Trust for the easements shall be the full and fair market value of the property determined by the commissioner of the division of capital asset management and maintenance based upon the independent appraisal, for the use as described herein. The inspector general shall review and approve the appraisal and the review shall include a review of methodology utilized for the appraisal. Said inspector general shall prepare a report of his review and file the report with said commissioner for submission to the house and senate committees on ways and means and chairmen of the joint committee on state administration in accordance with section 5.
SECTION 3.

In the event the easements cease to be used at any time for the purposes contained herein, the easements shall terminate and all interests therein shall automatically terminate and revert to the care and control of the division of capital asset management and maintenance upon the execution and recording with the Middlesex registry of deeds by the commonwealth of a written notice of such termination and reversion.
SECTION 4. The sale price paid as consideration pursuant to section 2 shall be deposited in the General Fund.
