18A:24-89. Endorsement of consent of local finance board; conditions
a. A copy of the resolution of the State board referred to in section 3c. and a copy of the proposal or ordinance referred to in section 3d. bearing the endorsement of the commissioner as aforesaid, shall be submitted to the local finance board for its consideration. The local finance board, in considering any proposal or ordinance submitted to it and before endorsing its consent thereon, may require the board of education of any school district or the governing body of any municipality in such school district to adopt resolutions restricting or limiting any future proceedings with respect to the authorization of bonds or other matters deemed by the local finance board to affect any estimate made or to be made by it in accordance with subsection b. hereof. Every resolution so adopted shall constitute a valid and binding obligation of such school district or municipality running to and enforceable by, and releasable by, the local finance board.
b. Within 60 days after the submission to it of the resolution and proposal or ordinance, the local finance board shall cause its consent to be endorsed upon the proposal or ordinance authorizing such qualified bonds, if it shall be satisfied, and shall record by resolution, that the amounts to be expended for the education facilities to be financed pursuant to such proposal or ordinance are not unreasonable or exorbitant, and that issuance of the qualified bonds, to be authorized by such proposal or ordinance, will not materially impair the credit of any municipality comprised within the district or substantially reduce its ability, during the ensuing 10 years, to pay punctually the principal and interest on its debts while at the same time supplying essential public improvements and services. If the local finance board is not so satisfied it shall cause its disapproval to be endorsed on such copy within said period of 60 days.
