2A:166-12. Execution against municipality for fines and costs returned unsatisfied
When any execution, issued against any municipality, for the amount of any fine and costs as provided in this subtitle shall be returned by the sheriff or other proper officer unsatisfied for want of goods and chattels or real estate of such municipality, the clerk of the court out of which the same issued shall make a copy thereof, with the indorsements thereon, and the return of the sheriff or other proper officer thereto, having added to the costs indorsed thereon $1, the fee of the clerk for the copy and a certificate thereof, and $2, the fee of the sheriff for the services hereinafter required of him, and certify the same under his hand and seal of office, and deliver it to the sheriff or other proper officer. Upon receiving such certified copy of the execution and return, the sheriff or other proper officer shall present the same to the county treasurer, who shall pay to the sheriff or other proper officer the amount of the costs indorsed, together with the interest due thereon, taking a receipt from the sheriff or other proper officer therefor, which certified copy and receipt shall be a sufficient voucher for the payment thereof, in the settlement of the accounts of the treasurer. The county treasurer, having paid the costs, shall thereupon charge the same, together with the amount of the fine, to the municipality against which such execution was issued, adding thereto interest up to the 15th day of December following the next annual levy of taxes in the county, and shall transmit a statement of the same to the county board of taxation on or before March 1st preceding such annual levy. Such sum shall be added to the proportion or quota of the tax next to be levied and collected in such municipality, and shall be assessed, levied, collected and paid over in the same manner and under the same penalties as the proportion or quota of tax is by law directed to be assessed, levied, collected and paid for.
