Pursuant to the provisions of the Sewerage Authorities Law (P.L. 1946, c. 138; N.J.S.A. 40:14A-1 et seq.) of the State of New Jersey, there is hereby created a public body, corporate and politic, under the name and style of the "Cinnaminson Sewerage Authority."
The Authority shall consist of five members appointed by resolution in accordance with N.J.S.A. 40:14A-4b. The governing body may also appoint one or two alternate members to serve during the absence or disqualification of any regular member(s). If only one alternate is appointed, his or her term shall be for a term of five years commencing on February 1 of the year of appointment and expiring on the fifth January 31 next ensuing. If two alternate members are appointed, they shall be known as "Alternate No. 1" and Alternate No. 2." The initial terms of appointment for Alternate No. 1 and Alternate No. 2 shall be for four and five years, respectively, commencing on the dates of their appointment and expiring on the fourth or fifth January 31 next ensuing after the dates of appointment, as the case may be. Thereafter, the term of each appointment shall be for five years commencing on February 1 of the year of appointment and expiring on the fifth January 31 next ensuing after the date of appointment. Alternate members may participate in discussions of the proceedings but may not vote, except in the absence or disqualification of a regular member. A vote shall not be delayed in order that a regular member may vote instead of an alternate member. The order of voting shall be Alternate No. 1 for the first absence or disqualification of a regular member followed by Alternate No. 2 for the second absence or disqualification. Alternate members shall receive the same compensation as regular members.
The Cinnaminson Sewerage Authority hereby created is a sewerage authority as contemplated and provided for by said Sewerage Authorities Law and shall have and exercise all of the powers and perform all of the duties provided for by said Sewerage Authorities Law and any other statutes heretofore or hereafter enacted and applicable thereto.
