Scagliarini, Jr., Sandra Sparks and Herta V. Sawyer Life Estate, the current tenants or occupants thereof, their successors and assigns who have made, or will make, improvements to the parcel or parcels, for periods not to exceed 20 years, with extensions for such consecutive 10 year terms as may be approved by the board of selectmen. The parcel or parcels may not be assigned to others, or sublet by any lessee or lessees, without the prior written approval of the board of selectmen. Any further disposition of the parcel or parcels, other than that authorized by this act, shall be subject to the provisions of chapter 30B of the General Laws and any other applicable law.
SECTION 2.

The annual rent due to the town by the lessee shall be adjusted annually as the tax rate or assessment changes.
SECTION 3. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
