This bill allows certain emergency squad volunteers holding municipal elective office to vote on emergency squad concerns. Currently, under the provisions of N.J.S.40A:9-4 and N.J.S.40A:14-68, persons holding municipal elected office who also serve on volunteer fire and emergency squads and companies are required to recuse themselves from any vote concerning those squads and companies. This bill would relax the recusal requirement so that it would apply only to officers, directors, or trustees of squads and companies in municipalities that have a population below 5,000. For the purposes of this bill, a municipality will be determined to have a population of below 5,000 if reported as such in the two most recent official population estimates issued by the Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Division of Labor Market and Demographic Research. Requiring this finding in two consecutive estimates will provide a grace period so that municipalities with populations around 5,000 will not be subject to frequent changes in this rule due to annual population fluctuations.
