40:44-10. Application to and governance of municipalities divided into wards
This act shall apply to and govern any municipality having adopted a charter or form of government, or ordinance, providing that the municipality shall be divided into wards, or other similar representation districts, for the purpose of the election or appointment of any municipal officers. It shall constitute the exclusive method whereby the boundaries of wards, or other similar representation districts, in municipalities shall be fixed and determined, and to this end all acts or parts of acts, whether of a general or special character, which conflict or are incompatible with its provisions are superseded to the degree of the conflict or incompatibility. Nothing in this act shall be sufficient in itself to authorize any municipality to divide into wards or other similar representation districts, nor to increase or decrease the number of its wards or similar representation districts.
