40:48-2.48. Real property of camp meeting association; sanitary sewerage facilities; assessment
Whenever any real property owned by and controlled by any camp meeting association heretofore or hereafter incorporated under any laws of this State shall lie within the territorial area of any municipality, and said association, and the lessees of any such real property pay taxes to said municipality based on assessments and rates fixed by said municipality, and said lessees are legal voters within said municipality, then, pursuant to a determination by the governing bodies of said association and municipality that said association is unable to provide proper sewerage facilities with respect to said real property lying within the boundaries of said municipality pursuant to chapter 96 of Title 40 of the Revised Statutes and that the provision of such facilities would promote the health and safety of the inhabitants of said municipality, said municipality, upon the request by resolution of the board of trustees of said camp meeting association, may provide sanitary sewerage facilities with respect to said real property lying within said municipality by an extension of the existing sanitary sewerage system of said municipality, as provided by agreement between said association and municipality. Any such agreement or supplements thereto between said association and municipality may provide for and relate to the original acquisition or construction of such sanitary sewerage facilities and the operation and maintenance and subsequent extensions to and improvements of such facilities, and the costs and expenses and any other matters of interest or concern to said municipality and association with respect to the aforementioned and said sanitary sewerage facilities. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, said municipality is and shall be authorized to assess all or any part of the cost of construction of said sanitary sewerage facilities upon the real estate lots or parcels of land benefited thereby. Any such assessment by said municipality shall be made in accordance with the provisions of chapter 56 of Title 40 of the Revised Statutes of New Jersey for assessments for benefits. For the purposes of such assessments, any leasehold interest with respect to said real estate, lots or parcels of land owned by the association having a term of duration equal to or exceeding 99 years shall be deemed to be and to constitute real estate and shall be assessed as such and the failure of any lessee to pay any such assessment shall create a first lien thereon, paramount to all prior or subsequent alienations, descents or encumbrances, except subsequent taxes or assessments, notwithstanding any mistake in the name or names of any lessee or lessees, or any omission to name any lessee or lessees who are unknown, and notwithstanding any lack of form therein, or in any other proceeding which does not impair the substantial rights of the lessee or lessees or other person or persons having a lien upon or interest therein. Any municipality which shall undertake to provide sanitary sewerage facilities pursuant to this act is expressly authorized to make appropriations therefor, to acquire from said association all land, rights in land, easements and rights-of-way necessary or convenient or desirable therefor and to authorize and issue its bonds or notes therefor pursuant to the provisions of the local bond law of New Jersey, provided, however, that no down payment shall be required.
