Whereas, the total amount of emergency appropriations created including the appropriation to be created by the resolution is $164,500.00

Now Therefore Be It Resolved, that in accordance with N.J.S. 40A:4-46:

1. An emergency appropriation be and the same is hereby made for the down payment on capital improvements in the amount of $164,500.00
