30:9-23.19 Governing board of authority.
5. a. The authority shall be governed by an 11-member board. The members shall be divided among four classes. The Class I member shall be the mayor of the city, or his designee, ex officio. There shall be two Class II hospital members, who shall serve on, and be appointed by, the medical staff executive committee of the hospital, to terms concurrent with their membership on the executive committee, and who need not be residents of the city. There shall be six Class III public members, at least four of whom shall be residents of the city, but none of whom shall be officers or employees of the city or of the manager. The Class III public members shall be appointed by the mayor of the city, with the advice and consent of the city council. At least two of the Class III members shall have special expertise as follows: one shall have extensive expertise in finance of private or nonprofit organizations, and one shall have extensive expertise in nonprofit organizational management. The Class III members shall serve for terms of five years and until their respective successors have been appointed and qualified; except that of the six members first appointed by the mayor, one shall be appointed for a term of one year, one for a term of two years, one for a term of three years, one for a term of four years, and two for a term of five years. The hospital's chief executive officer or a designee thereof shall serve as a nonvoting Class IV member. The Commissioner of Community Affairs shall appoint one individual as a nonvoting Class IV member. Vacancies shall be filled in the same manner as the original appointments were made, but for the unexpired term.

b.Members of an authority shall not receive compensation for their services, but shall be entitled to reimbursement for actual expenses necessarily incurred in the discharge of the duties of membership, including travel expenses. The powers of the authority shall be vested in the members thereof in office from time to time. Five members shall constitute a quorum of the authority for the purpose of conducting its business and exercising its powers and all other purposes. Action may be taken by the authority upon the affirmative vote of the majority, but not less than five of the members present, unless in any case the bylaws of the authority or State law or regulation shall require a larger number.

c.The authority shall select a chairman and a vice-chairman from among its Class III public members, and may employ an executive director, who may be its secretary.

d.Class II and Class IV members of the authority shall not be deemed to have an interest in the hospital solely by virtue of their membership on the medical staff of the hospital or their employment by or contract with a manager, and they shall not be subject to the provisions of subsections d. and e. of section 5 of P.L.1991, c.29 (C.40A:9-22.5) of the "Local Government Ethics Law."

e.A member of an authority may be removed by the governing body or officer by which he was appointed for inefficiency or neglect of duty or misconduct in office; but only after the member has been given a copy of the charges at least 10 days prior to a hearing thereon and has had the opportunity to be heard in person or by counsel. In the event of a removal of any member of an authority, a record of the proceedings, together with the charges and findings thereon, shall be filed in the office of the clerk of the city.
