40:41A-128. Appointments between election and time of taking office under optional plan; pending actions and proceedings
a. No subordinate board, department, body, office, position or employment shall be created and, except in the case of positions created by this act, no appointments shall be made to any subordinate board, department or body, or to any office, employment or position, without limitation, between the date of election of officers and the effective date of the administrative code; except that such temporary appointments may be made as shall be deemed necessary for the continuation of government services or as may be required by emergency situations, which situations shall be identified in a resolution adopted by the board of freeholders; provided, however, that all such temporary appointments shall terminate on the date that the administrative code takes effect. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed as limiting the discretion of the appointing authority to reappoint, on a permanent basis, any person whose temporary appointment terminates on the effective date of the administrative code.

b. All actions and proceedings of a legislative, executive or judicial character which are pending upon the effective date of an optional plan adopted pursuant to this act may continue, and the appropriate officer or employee under such optional plan shall be substituted for the officer or employee theretofore exercising or discharging the function, power or duty involved in such action or proceeding.
