40:68A-38. Dissolution of municipal port authority; vesting of property in municipality
The governing body of any municipality which has created a municipal port authority pursuant to this act may, by ordinance adopted by the recorded affirmative vote of at least two-thirds of the full membership of the governing body, dissolve such municipal port authority on the condition that (1) if such authority has any debts other than bonds outstanding, the municipality shall appropriate the moneys required to enable all such debts to be discharged in full, and (2) either such authority has no bonds outstanding or all holders of bonds of the municipal port authority have consented to the ordinance. A copy of the ordinance for the dissolution of a municipal port authority pursuant to this section duly certified by the appropriate officer of the municipality which has adopted such ordinance shall be filed in the office of the Secretary of State and shall be transmitted to the Director of the Division of Local Government Services. Upon proof of such filing of a certified copy of the ordinance for the dissolution of a municipal port authority as aforesaid and upon proof either that such municipal port authority had no bonds outstanding at the time of the adoption of such ordinance, or that all holders of bonds of such municipal port authority have consented to such ordinance, the municipal port authority therein referred to shall be conclusively deemed to have been lawfully and properly dissolved and the property of such municipal port authority shall be vested in the municipality adopting such ordinance. A copy of any such certified ordinance, duly certified by or on behalf of the Secretary of State, shall be admissible in evidence in any such action, or proceeding, and shall be conclusive evidence of due and proper filing thereof as aforesaid.
