Section 40A:2-51.2 - Local unit authorized to issue bonds
40A:2-51.2. Local unit authorized to issue bonds
If a local unit shall require moneys for the purpose of assuring against adopting a budget which sets forth a deficit, the director may recommend that the Local Finance Board authorize the local unit to issue bonds, entitled "fiscal year adjustment bonds," authorized in accordance with the provisions governing refunding bonds for emergency appropriations set forth in N.J.S.40A:2-51 through 40A:2-60, except that the vote of the local governing body required for adoption of the bond ordinance or other action authorizing the sale of the bonds or bond anticipation notes shall be the same as required for adoption of the local budget. The proceeds of any fiscal year adjustment bonds shall be considered as anticipated revenues applicable to the expenditures for which appropriations are made in the transition year budget. In anticipation of the issuance of the bonds, bond anticipation notes may be issued in an amount not to exceed the estimate of the deficit in the transition year budget as determined by the director. Bond anticipation notes shall mature no later than one year from the date of issuance and may be renewed from time to time only with the permission of the Local Finance Board.
