This bill would authorize a municipality to adopt an ordinance authorizing special emergency appropriations for the payment of non-recurring expenses incurred by that municipality to implement a consolidation with another municipality, or municipalities, pursuant to the "Municipal Consolidation Act," P.L.1977, c.435 (C.40:43-66.35 et seq.); the sparsely populated municipalities law, P.L.1995, c.376 (C.40:43-66.78 et seq.); or sections 25 through 29 of the "Uniform Shared Services and Consolidation Act," P.L.2007, c.63 (C.40A:65-25 through C.40A:65-29); or N.J.S.40A:7-1 et seq., in the case of a consolidation effectuated through the annexation of land comprising an entire municipality or entire municipalities, to another municipality. Under current law, special emergency appropriations are paid for through the issuance of "special emergency notes," which must be paid off in five years. The use of special emergency appropriations, and the issuance of special emergency notes to fund the non-recurring costs and expenses associated with the consolidation process will allow consolidating municipalities to immediately begin to experience the financial savings of municipal consolidation by spreading the effect of the non-recurring costs associated with municipal consolidation over a five-year period. The bill would also provide that non-recurring expenses incurred by a municipality to implement a consolidation with another municipality, or municipalities, shall be exempt from the 2% property tax levy cap.
