18A:46-42. Bonds, appropriation for land or buildings
14. Whenever a board of education of a county special services school district shall decide that it is necessary to sell bonds to raise money for the purchase of lands or buildings for school purposes or for erecting, enlarging, improving, repairing, or furnishing a building or buildings for the use of the school district, it shall prepare and deliver to each member of the board of school estimate a statement of the amount of money estimated to be necessary for such purpose or purposes.
The board of school estimate shall fix and determine the necessary amount and shall make two certificates thereof, one of which certificates shall be delivered to the board of education and the other to the board of chosen freeholders of the county.
The board of chosen freeholders may appropriate and borrow such amount for the purpose or purposes aforesaid by issuance of bonds or notes of the county pursuant to the Local Bond Law, notwithstanding any debt or limitation or requirement for down payment therein provided for. The proceeds of the sale of such obligations shall be paid to the treasurer of the county special services school district and shall be paid out by him only on the warrants or orders of the board of education of the county special services school district. The treasurer shall in no event disburse such proceeds, except to pay the expense of issuing and selling such obligations and for the purpose or purposes for which such obligations were issued. If for any reason any part of such proceeds are not applied to or necessary for such purpose or purposes, the board of education of the county special services school district may transfer the balance remaining unapplied to the general fund of the school district.
