[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Supervisors of the Township of Warwick 9-27-1984 by Ord. No. 84-1 as Part 2:400 of the 1984 Warwick Township Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Township shall join with other municipalities in accordance with the Pennsylvania Intergovernmental Cooperation Act by becoming a settlor of the Pennsylvania Local Government Investment Trust (the Trust) and entering into the Declaration of Trust, which is adopted by reference with the same effect as if it had been set out verbatim in this section and a copy of which shall be filed with the minutes of the meeting at which this chapter originally was adopted.
The Board is authorized to purchase shares in the Trust from time to time with available municipal funds and to redeem some or all of those shares from time to time as funds are needed for municipal purposes. These actions are to be taken by the officers designated for this purpose, pursuant to general or specific instructions by the Board.
The Trustees of the Trust are designated as having official custody of the Township's funds which are invested by the purchase of shares in the Trust.
As required by the Intergovernmental Cooperation Act, the following matters are specifically found and determined:
The Township's participation in the Trust shall be terminable at any time by ordinance;
The Declaration of Trust and the purchase of its shares are for the purpose of investing the Township's funds in obligations which are otherwise legal investments as part of a pooled arrangement with other governmental units, thereby achieving economic and other advantages of pooled investments;
It is not necessary to finance the agreement authorized herein from municipal funds except through the purchase of shares in the Trust;
The Trust shall be managed by a Board of Trustees as set forth in the Declaration of Trust and the bylaws provided for therein; and
Shares may be purchased and redeemed from time to time as the Township may determine to be necessary or appropriate to meet its cash investment requirements.
