[HISTORY: Adopted by the Mayor and Council of the Borough of Roselle 10-24-1979 as Ord. No. 1473. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Mayor and Council of the Borough of Roselle shall be required to authorize all change orders except:
When an emergency condition requires immediate action, the Borough Engineer or the Superintendent of Highways may authorize the necessary actions to be taken, but only to the extent necessary to meet the emergency. In such cases, the action taken shall be reported promptly to the Mayor and Council of the Borough of Roselle, which shall then act to ratify the action and authorize payment. The procedures prescribed in the Local Public Contract Guidelines and Local Public Contract Regulations promulgated by the Local Finance Board, Division of Local Government Services, New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, on April 5, 1977, shall be utilized.
Minor field modifications, to the extent normally permitted by the Mayor and Council of the Borough of Roselle and its appropriate administrative officials, shall be authorized, provided that they do not affect the overall scope of work of the contract. If change orders will result in an inability to complete the full contracted scope of services without increasing the contracted price, the Mayor and Council must approve in advance.
If the awarded contract includes a sum for contingencies, said sum shall be encumbered against the particular appropriation, and charges against that amount may be authorized by the Borough Engineer or the Superintendent of Highways, provided that the sum so included does not exceed twenty percent (20%) of the entire contract.
