4:1C-17. Subregional agricultural retention board; membership; dissolution
a. If any board of chosen freeholders has not created a board within 1 year of the effective date of this act, the governing body of any municipality located within that county may, singly or jointly by parallel ordinance with other contiguous municipalities within the county, establish a subregional agricultural retention board, which shall have the same responsibilities as a county board, except that its jurisdiction shall not exceed the boundaries of the municipality or municipalities establishing the board. Every subregional agricultural retention board may receive State moneys from the fund pursuant to the provisions of this act.
b. The members of a subregional agricultural retention board shall be appointed in the same manner as a county board, except that the planning board representative shall be from the municipal planning board and the appointive members shall be residents of the municipality. If two or more municipalities jointly create a subregional board, the number of members thereof shall be multiplied by the number of municipalities involved.
c. If the governing body of the county creates a board subsequent to the establishment of a subregional agricultural retention board, the subregional body shall, within 90 days of the date of the creation of the board, be dissolved but may remain advisory to the board. The board shall honor any contractual commitments of the subregional agricultural retention board.
