New Jersey Statutes, Title: 44, POOR

    Chapter 4:

      Section: 44:4-119: Acquisition of cemetery by county; issuance of bonds

           A county may acquire by devise, gift, purchase, condemnation or in any other manner, such land as in the judgment of the governing body may be necessary and proper for a burial ground for those who may die therein without leaving means necessary to defray their funeral expenses. Such lands may be within the boundaries of an existing cemetery.

If in the opinion of the governing body the amount of such cost will be too burdensome to be borne by the taxpayers in any one year, they may issue bonds therefor, in the manner in which other county bonds are issued pursuant to law.
