40A:27-16. Issuance of bonds to pay costs of provision of flood control facilities; payment of costs in annual installments, etc.

If a contractor, pursuant to a contract with a contracting local unit, constructs, acquires or improves a flood control facility the contractor may either: a. bear the entire cost of the construction or acquisition of the facility by itself; or b. share the cost of the construction or acquisition of the facility with the contracting unit. The contractor may issue its bonds for all or part of the cost of the construction, acquisition or improvement of the facility. If the cost is to be shared by the contracting local unit, the contractor may issue bonds for its share of the cost and the contracting local unit may issue bonds for its share of the cost, or the contractor may issue bonds for the entire cost of the facility, and the share of the cost to be borne by the contracting local unit shall be repaid to the contractor by the contracting local unit in annual installments, over a period not exceeding 40 years, agreed upon by the parties to the contract. The amount of the annual installments shall include interest at the rate or rates agreed upon by the parties to the contract. These agreements shall be authorized by a resolution or ordinance, as the case may be, duly adopted by the governing bodies of the parties to the contract. The annual payments received by a contractor from the contracting local unit may also include an additional annual amount agreed upon for the payment of the agreed share of the cost of operation and maintenance and improvement or enlargement of the facility.
