40:37-95.42. Governing body control of county parks
It is lawful for the governing body of any county of the second class having a population in excess of 425,000, but less than 450,000, according to the most recent federal decennial census, to assume and thereafter to exercise the administration, regulation and control of the county parks and recreation places within that county whenever the governing body decides, by resolution adopted by the affirmative vote of a majority of all its members, to do so. The governing body shall hold a public hearing on the resolution prior to voting thereon and shall, in at least one newspaper circulating in the county, publish notice of the date, time and place of the public hearing at least two weeks prior to the hearing. Upon approval of the resolution, the governing body shall file a certificate of that decision attested to by the clerk in the office of the Secretary of State. When the certificate is filed, the administration, regulation and control of the county parks and recreation places of that county shall no longer be with the county park commission but with the governing body of the county. The governing body shall not consider or approve a resolution altering the assumption of the administration, regulation and control of the county parks and recreation places until three years have passed from the date of the filing of the certificate.
