This bill provides for the early termination of terms of office for certain appointed municipal court positions when two or more municipalities enter into agreements to establish joint municipal courts or shared municipal courts pursuant to subsection b. or c. of N.J.S.2B:12-1 respectively. Under current law, municipal court judges are appointed to a three-year term pursuant to N.J.S.2B:12-4, municipal public defenders are appointed for a one-year term under section 4 of P.L.1997, c.256 (C.2B:24-4), and municipal prosecutors are generally appointed for a one-year term under section 4 of P.L.1999, c.349 (C.2B:25-4). This bill amends each of these sections of law to allow municipalities that enter joint or shared municipal court agreements the express authority to terminate the existing terms of office for any such municipal court positions prior to the scheduled date of expiration of these position's terms as necessary, in order to facilitate the sharing of services established by the agreements.
