Sale of Governmental Projects – Change in Use 

Several Hodgson Russ municipal clients have asked us to consider the legal issues relating to the conveyance of municipality-owned capital projects.

Issues addressed included the treatment and use of the sale proceeds and status of the tax-exempt bonds previously issued by the municipality to acquire and improve the landfill.
