Sewer connections — See Ch. 398.
The Township of Middletown Sewerage Authority, heretofore established, is hereby continued.
There are in and about the Township of Middletown, in the County of Monmouth, New Jersey, waters which are polluted and are subject to pollution by sewage and industrial and other wastes arising from causes within the Township. The Township Committee has ascertained that there is imperative need to relieve such waters from pollution and thereby reduce and ultimately abate the menace to the public health resulting from such pollution.
The Sewerage Authorities Law of the State of New Jersey (N.J.S.A. 40:14A-1 et seq.) grants power to every municipality of the state, by means and through the agency of a sewerage authority, to acquire, construct, maintain, operate or improve works for the collection, treatment, purification or disposal of sewage or other wastes.
The Township Committee has decided and hereby determines that it is necessary and advisable and is in the best interests of the inhabitants of said Township that there be created a Sewerage Authority pursuant to said Sewerage Authorities Law as a public body corporate and politic and an agency and instrumentality of the Township for the purposes of the relief of waters in or bordering the state from pollution arising from causes within said Township and the relief of waters in, bordering or entering the Township from pollution, or threatened pollution, and the consequent improvement of conditions affecting public health.
There is hereby created and established a Sewerage Authority for the Township of Middletown, in the County of Monmouth, New Jersey, under the corporate name and title of Township of Middletown Sewerage Authority. The Township of Middletown Sewerage Authority shall have and exercise all of the powers and perform all of the duties provided for by N.J.S.A. 40:14A-1 et seq., as amended, together with any other powers and duties which may hereafter be conferred by law upon sewerage authorities.
[Amended 3-10-1986 by Ord. No. 1856; 1-25-1988 by Ord. No. 2019]
The members and two alternate members of said Township of Middletown Sewerage Authority shall be hereafter appointed by resolution of the Township Committee in the manner provided in N.J.S.A. 40:14A-1 et seq., as amended, and each member shall receive such compensation, not in excess of $1,750, and the Chairman not in excess of $2,150, in any one year, as shall hereafter be determined by said Township of Middletown Sewerage Authority; provided, however, that in no event may any member receive any additional compensation for his services as officer, agent or employee of said Authority.
