A. 
Findings. The Borough of Old Tappan has ascertained, and does hereby determine, that it is situated within the sewer district of the Bergen County Utilities Authority or is, directly or indirectly, discharging sewage into rivers or their tributaries in the State of New Jersey and can advantageously use facilities of the district sewer system of the Authority, and that it will be economical and in other respects advantageous to it to have sewage and other wastes treated and disposed of by the Authority on and pursuant to the terms of the agreement authorized by this section.

Execution of agreement. The borough shall enter into an agreement with the Bergen County Utilities Authority and various other parties, if necessary, providing for and relating to the treatment and disposal of sewage and other wastes and the cost and expense of such treatment and disposal, on the terms and conditions and substantially in the form authorized by this section. The Mayor shall be and is hereby authorized and directed on behalf of the borough to execute such agreement under the Corporate Seal of the borough, which shall be affixed and attested to by the Borough Clerk, and to deliver the same.
The agreement entitled, "Three Year Cooperative Agreement: An Agreement Superseding the Cooperative Agreement Dated May, 1975, and Amendments Thereto for the purpose of Inserting a Description of Activities for the Thirteenth year (July 1, 1987 - June 30, 1988) Urban County Community Development Block Grant Program," to clarify the planning and implementation procedures, and to enable the borough to make a three year irrevocable commitment to participate in the Community Development Program for the program years 1988, 1989 and 1990 (July 10, 1988 - June 30, 1991) shall be executed by the Mayor and Borough Clerk in accordance with the provisions of law.

It is the considered opinion of the Mayor and Borough Council that senior citizens of low income in the community are entitled to safe and sanitary housing accommodations at rentals such persons can afford.

The borough is desirous of having its territorial area included in the area of operation of the Housing Authority of Bergen County.

The borough desires to participate in the area of operations of the Housing Authority of Bergen County throughout the territorial boundary and the jurisdiction of its Mayor and Council for the purpose of alleviating the shortage of safe and sanitary housing.

A.

Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 52:17C-1 et seq., all municipalities in the state are required to be serviced by E-911 service.
(2) 
The governing body of the Township of River Vale and the governing body of the Borough of Old Tappan have found it to be in the best interests of their respective municipalities to have the Township of River Vale provide to the Borough of Old Tappan said E-911 services through a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) to be established in River Vale.
