Per N.J.S.A. 40A: 9-22.1 et seq., the 2016 Financial Disclosure Statement (FDS) filing season is almost upon us. It is recommended that Municipal Clerks take the following actions: 1) Review that the LGE representative information is correct. The filing system allows for one LGE Rep per local government entity. If the LGE Rep e-mail address needs to be changed, contact the Local Finance Board staff at 609-292-4537 to do so. 2) Review your 2015 rosters and make any final changes now as the 2015 roster will be locked and no additional changes will be permitted for 2015 once the 2016 year is opened. Those local government officers who were initially appointed in 2016 should NOT be on the 2015 roster; if you have them listed on the 2015 roster, please remove them. 3) LGE Reps will be notified when the 2016 filing year is initiated. All roster details for 2015 will be copied and made available to LGE Reps to edit/update as the 2016 roster.
