40A:65-5 Adoption of resolution to enter into agreement.
5. a. A local unit authorized to enter into an agreement under section 4 of P.L.2007, c.63 (C.40A:65-4) may do so by the adoption of a resolution. In the case of a shared service agreement between pilot municipalities, no agreement shall be adopted until copies of the agreement shall be provided to all affected employees of the local units that are party to the agreement at least two weeks before adoption of the resolution, and a public hearing has been held on the agreement, so that all persons having an interest in the agreement shall have been given an opportunity to present comments or objections concerning the content of the agreement, or the effect of the agreement. During the public hearing, the local unit shall provide an overview of the terms of the agreement and an estimate of the cost savings anticipated to be achieved by the local units that are the parties to the agreement. A resolution adopted pursuant to this section or subsection b. of that section shall clearly identify the agreement by reference and need not set forth the terms of the agreement in full.
b. In the case of a shared services agreement between pilot municipalities, a copy of the agreement shall be open to public inspection at the offices of the local unit at least two weeks prior to the adoption of a resolution to become a party to the agreement.
c. The agreement shall take effect upon the adoption of appropriate resolutions by all the parties thereto, and execution of agreements authorized thereunder as set forth in the agreement.
