§ 72-4
Consideration of nonresidents. 

This chapter regulates the residency for municipal employees pursuant to Chapter 63 of the Laws of 1978, an act concerning residency requirements for municipal and County employees, supplementing Title 40A of the New Jersey Statutes and repealing Revised Statutes 11:22-7 and N.J.S.A. 40A:9-1, which enabled counties and municipalities to require all officers and employees employed by the local unit to be bona fide residents of therein.

It is the desire of the Township of Riverside to give first preference to residents of Riverside Township when filling positions.
