40A:9-140.12. Revocation, suspension of municipal finance officer certificate
Any municipal finance officer certificate may be revoked or suspended by the director for dishonest practices or willful or intentional failure, neglect or refusal to comply with the Constitution of the State of New Jersey or laws relating to municipal finances or other good cause. The governing body together with the appropriate chief executive officer of any municipality may request a review by the director of the behavior or practices of a certified municipal finance officer. The director may also initiate a review of the behavior or practices of a certified municipal finance officer if he finds it advisable to do so through the normal exercise of his statutory duties and responsibilities. No certificate shall be revoked or suspended except under a proper hearing before the director or his designee after due notice. If the municipal finance officer certificate of a person serving as a chief financial officer or municipal finance officer shall be revoked, such person shall be removed from his office or position by the director, the office or position shall be declared vacant, and the person shall not be eligible to hold that office or position or to make application for recertification for a period of five years from the date of revocation.
