40:48-17.7. Establishment of special reserve accounts for school building construction; transfer of funds
Any municipality may by ordinance establish a special reserve account for the construction of new school buildings by the board of education of the school district coextensive with the municipality or of which the municipality comprises a part. There may be paid into such special reserve account surplus revenues, in whole or in part, derived from licensing or permit fees as designated by resolution of the governing body of the municipality.
The said governing body may, by resolution, authorize the transfer of and cause to be transferred all or such part of such special reserve account as it shall deem advisable, to the board of education of the school district coextensive with the municipality or of which the municipality comprises a part to be used for the construction of new school buildings but no such transfer of funds from any such special reserve account, under the authority conferred by this section, shall be made unless and until such proposed transfer shall have been included in the local annual municipal budget for the year in which it is intended to make such transfer available.
In any case in which the municipality establishing such special reserve account is in a school district of which the municipality comprises a part, the governing body may as a condition upon such transfer, require the board of education of such school district to give credit to such municipality on account of the amount of school tax, for the construction of new school buildings, due or to become due from such municipality in any year.
