Every municipal authority, upon the first appointment of its members and thereafter on or after February 1 in each year, shall annually elect from among its members a chairman and a vice-chairman, who shall hold office until February 1 next ensuing and until their respective successors have been appointed and have qualified. Every municipal authority may also appoint and employ, full- or part-time, a secretary, an executive director, managerial personnel, technical advisors and experts, professional employees, and persons who shall render professional services as set forth in section 5 of P.L. 1971, c. 198 (C. 40A:11-5), as the authority may determine necessary for its efficient operations, and it shall determine their qualifications, terms of office, for periods not to exceed five years, duties and compensation and enter into contracts therefor, for periods not to exceed five years, as it deems necessary. Such municipal authority may also appoint and employ such other agents and employees as it may require and determine their duties and compensation. The provisions of this section with regard to terms shall not apply to the positions of general counsel and consulting engineer. The appointing and employing powers of the municipal authority set forth in this section shall be exercised without regard to the provisions of Title 11 of the Revised Statutes; provided, however, that any municipal authority which, prior to the effective date of this amendatory act, has accepted the jurisdiction of the Department of Civil Service, other than by reason of compliance with a court order, shall continue to be subject to the provisions of Title 11.
