40:56-73. Operation and maintenance; assessment or taxation of costs to benefited properties; name as improvement district
If the governing body determines that the improvements will involve annual costs in addition to the initial cost of constructing and making the improvements, and that such annual costs relate to maintenance services peculiar to the mall facility or special improvement district, as the case may be, and distinguished from maintenance services normally provided by the municipality outside of the mall facility or special improvement district, as the case may be, and will provide benefits primarily, in the case of a pedestrian mall, to adjacent, surrounding or neighboring property, or in the case of a special improvement district, to property included in the district, rather than to the municipality as a whole, the ordinance may provide that the improvements and facilities thereof shall be operated and maintained pursuant to the provisions of this act and the costs thereof assessed or taxed to benefited properties or businesses pursuant to the provisions of section 16 of P.L.1972, c. 134 (C. 40:56-80) or section 19 of this amendatory and supplementary act. At any time after a pedestrian mall or special improvement district ordinance has been adopted or lands have been acquired or improved for a pedestrian mall or special improvement district, as the case may be, the governing body may upon such determination provide, by separate ordinance or by amendment to the ordinance, that the improvements and facilities thereof shall be so operated and maintained and the costs so taxed and assessed to benefited properties or businesses. In any such case, such ordinance shall describe the properties to be assessed or taxed, or in which any businesses may be contained which may be assessed or taxed, for such annual costs, which area may be given the name "(name of Pedestrian Mall) Improvement District" or "(name of Special Improvement District) Improvement District" .
