The Camden Municipal Port Authority hereby created is a Municipal Port Authority, as contemplated and provided for by said Municipal Port Authorities Law, and shall have and exercise all of the powers and perform all of the duties provided for by said Municipal Port Authorities Law and any other statutes heretofore or hereafter enacted and applicable thereto.

§ 91-3 Competing with South Jersey Port Corporation Marine terminals.

[Added 4-27-1978 by Ord. No. MC-1331]

In recognition of the powers and authority granted to the South Jersey Port Corporation for port development in the South Jersey Port District under the South Jersey Port Corporation Act, the Camden Municipal Port Authority shall not be authorized to establish, acquire, construct, rehabilitate, improve, own, operate or maintain any marine terminals, as defined in N.J.S.A. 12:11A-3, which will compete with facilities of the South Jersey Port Corporation. Nothing contained in the order of the Superior Court of New Jersey, as entered on March 29, 1978, shall preclude the South Jersey Port Corporation from determining that any particular marine terminals or parts thereof do not compete with facilities of the South Jersey Port Corporation, and such determination shall be sufficient evidence of the noncompetitive aspect of such marine terminals within the provisions of this section.
