[Ord. #74-22, preamble]
The provision of adequate services to the people of our municipalities is in great measure dependent on the skills and training of municipal officers and employees; and constant changes and technological innovations in all service areas demand continuing in-service training and retraining programs and the upgrading of technical and executive skills. Such training as has been available is fragmented among a variety of agencies and educational institutions, with little or no central coordination or policy focus. The training opportunities available to employees of our municipal governments are inadequate to meet the demand and need; and there is a clear and immediate need for consolidation of resources and central coordination, supervision and planning of training programs for municipal officers and employees of the contracting communities. The Township of Cherry Hill has offered to establish, with the assistance of the State of New Jersey, a program for the development and training of municipal officers and employees. The Senate and General Assembly of the State have enacted an Act entitled the "Interlocal Services Act" (N.J.S.A. 40:8A-1) whereby municipalities may contract among themselves to provide public services.
[Ord. #74-22, § 1]
The Township of Cherry Hill authorizes the appropriate Township officers to execute an agreement with other municipalities to establish and participate in a program for the development and training of municipal officers and employees. A copy of the agreement is on file with the Township Clerk.
[Ord. #74-22, § 2]
The appropriate officers of the Township are authorized to take all additional steps and actions and to expend funds as may be necessary and proper to carry to completion the purpose set forth in the foregoing subsection, and to fulfill the obligations of the Township under the above described agreement.
[Ord. #87-1, preamble, 1-29-87]

[Ord. #87-1, § 1, 1-29-87]
The provisions of Chapter 141, Laws of 1985 are adopted.
[Ord. #87-1, § 2, 1-29-87]
