[HISTORY: Adopted by the Township Council of the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills 10-28-1986 by Ord. No. 86:72 as Sec. 2-18 of the 1986 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
It is the considered opinion of the Township Council that senior citizens of low income in the community are entitled to safe and sanitary housing accommodations at rentals they can afford. Such low rental housing accommodations are in extremely short supply, and overcrowded and congested housing will eventuate from such a shortage and thereby impair public safety and economic values. The shortage of such safe and sanitary housing for low-income senior citizens cannot be totally eliminated through private enterprise, and, therefore, new and rehabilitated construction of housing projects and facilities would not be competitive with private enterprise.
The Township desires to participate in the area of operations of the Housing Authority of Morris County throughout its territorial boundary and the jurisdiction of the Township Council for the purpose of alleviating the shortage of safe and sanitary housing for low-income senior citizens. The Township does hereby consent to its inclusion in the area of operation of the Housing Authority of Morris County, through the leasing program. The Township Clerk is hereby authorized and directed to file a certified copy of this chapter with the Commissioner of the State Department of Conservation and Economic Development and with the Secretary of the Housing Authority of Morris County. The Township reserves the right to modify or terminate this chapter at any time.
