40A:5A-12. Funding of deficit
The Local Finance Board shall have the power, in the case of a service contract between an authority and a local unit or units, to enforce, by appropriate order, the terms and provisions thereof with respect to the funding of a deficit, whether in existence or anticipated. If the Local Finance Board has reason to believe that an authority is faced with financial difficulty, it shall have the power to order an increase in rents, rates, fees or other charges of the authority, and this order shall be valid and enforceable, notwithstanding any provisions to the contrary in R.S. 48:2-1 et seq. The Local Finance Board, before issuing this order, shall first hold a hearing consistent with section 18 of this act. The Local Finance Board also shall have authority to provide that a requirement that a local unit or units pay a deficit under a service contract be funded through the issuance of notes as provided in section 14 of this act (C. 40A:5A-14). Any order so issued shall be deemed conclusive and final, and upon receipt of this order all persons shall be estopped from contesting the order or the provisions thereof. Any authority or local unit or units affected by the order shall promptly take the action necessary to comply with this order.
