[ARCHIVED] Governor Signs Law Allowing for Nonresident Municipal Emergency Management Coordinators

This week, Governor Murphy signed into law S-551 (now, P.L.2021, c.50). This new law permits the appointment of a non-resident municipal emergency management coordinator in municipalities with populations under 5,000 persons, if a qualified municipal resident cannot be recruited for the position. The appointee must, however, be a resident of another municipality in the same county. Prior to the adoption P.L.2021, c.50, municipal emergency coordinators were required to be municipal residents unless the municipality was participating in a shared service agreement.

The League supported this legislation and we thank the sponsors for their attention to a problem faced by less populous municipalities.
