Article I Ewing-Lawrence Sewerage Authority
[Adopted 11-24-1998 by Ord. No. 98-13 as Ch. 6 of the 1998 Code]
Pursuant to the provisions of the Sewerage Authorities Law of the State of New Jersey (P.L. 1946, c. 138; N.J.S.A. 40:14A-1 et seq.), there is hereby created a joint sewerage authority to be known as the "Ewing-Lawrence Sewerage Authority," which shall have and exercise all of the powers and perform all of the duties provided for by the Sewerage Authorities Law and by any other statutes heretofore or hereafter enacted and applicable thereto.
As provided by law, the Sewerage Authority shall consist of six regular members, three of whom shall be appointed by resolution of the Township Council and three members who shall be appointed by the governing body of the Township of Lawrence, whose compensation for services as such members shall not be in excess of $1,500 per annum.
[Amended 6-11-2013 by Ord. No. 13-23]
In addition to regular members of the Sewerage Authority, the governing body of the Township of Ewing and the governing body of the Township of Lawrence shall each appoint not more than two alternate members. Alternate members for Ewing Township shall be designated as "Ewing Township Alternate No. 1" and "Ewing Township Alternate No. 2." Alternate members for Lawrence Township shall be designated as "Lawrence Township Alternate No. 1" and "Lawrence Township Alternate No. 2." Alternate members shall serve during the absence or disqualification of any regular member or members of their respective township. Alternate members may participate in discussions of the proceedings but may not vote, except in the absence or disqualification of a regular member. A vote shall not be delayed in order that a regular member may vote instead of an alternate member. The term of each alternate member shall be five years commencing on February 1 of the year of appointment; provided, however, that in the event that the governing body of the Township of Ewing or the governing body of the Township of Lawrence appoints two alternate members, their initial terms shall be four and five years, respectively. The terms of the first alternate members appointed shall commence on the dates of their appointments and shall expire on the fourth or fifth January 31 next ensuing after the dates of their appointments. There will be no compensation for services of alternate members.
