2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill constitutes special legislation, requested by the Board of Trustees of the Township of South Orange Village in Essex County, to change the municipality's name from the "Township of South Orange Village," to "South Orange Village," and to make other changes to the municipality's special charter. A special charter was granted by the Legislature in 1872, naming the municipality the "Village of South Orange," but was repealed upon the enactment of a new special charter in the form of P.L.1977, c.183, changing the name to the "Township of South Orange Village." This bill amends P.L.1977, c.183 to change the municipality's name to "South Orange Village." This bill also replaces the office of the Village treasurer with the chief financial officer's office, replaces the "Board of Trustees" with the "Council," replaces the "Village President" with the "Mayor," replaces the "Village counsel" with the "Village attorney," and makes several technical changes to conform the special charter to State law.
