Hon. Dana L. Redd v. Vance Bowman (A-71/72/73-13; 073567)
The Faulkner Act initiated, proposed ordinance does not constitute an unlawful restraint on the future exercise of the City of Camden’s legislative power and is not preempted by the Municipal Rehabilitation and Economic Recovery Act or any of the state’s fiscal statutes. However, the ordinance, as drafted, is out of date, inaccurate, and misleading. The challenge to the police reorganization must start anew with an ordinance that reflects the facts as they now stand.
