on non-payment of taxes due to inadvertent failure to pay taxes thereon by Armando A. Acosta the former owner of such property. Pursuant to sections 11-424 and 11-424.1 of the administrative code of the city of New York, the city may release its interest in property thus acquired if an application for such a release is filed with the city's department of general services within two years of the date on which the city's deed is recorded and if such application is approved by the in

foreclosure release board. Since that period has now elapsed, and pending the effectiveness of a chapter of the laws of 1992 authorizing the in rem foreclosure release board to authorize the release of property where an application for such release is made more than two years after the date of the city's acquisition thereof, state legislation is necessary to restore said property to the aforesaid former owner. In addition, since the New York city charter requires that the sale of city owned property be at public auction or by sealed bids (except as otherwise provided by law), state legislative authorization is necessary to permit said reconveyance.

§ 2. Notwithstanding any other provision of general, special or local
law, charter or administrative code to the contrary and subject to
tion three of this act, the city of New York is hereby authorized to
release its interest in and reconvey the real property designated as tax
block 4104, lot #32, the tax map of the city for the borough of
Queens as said map was on December 19, 1979, to the former record
of said property on such date.

$. 3. Such release and reconveyance may be made only upon the approval
of the in rem foreclosure release board established by section 11-424.1
of the administrative code of the city of New York, subject to the
grantee meeting the following conditions precedent:

(a) Submit an application for release in writing to the city commissioner of general services accompanied by a certified title search, affidavit of ownership, and all fees and payments as otherwise required by section 11-424 of the administrative code of the city of New York.

(b), Pay all taxes, interest, penalties and charges otherwise required by section 11-424 of the administrative code of the city of New York upon approval of the application by the in rem foreclosure release 9.4. This chapter of the laws of 1992 shall not be deemed to be the chapter upon the effectiveness of which paragraph (2) of subdivision a under local law, depends. Accordingly, the provisions of such paragraph (2). shall not apply to the release and reconveyance authorized to be § 5. This act shall take effect immediately.
