198.1. The parties to an agreement contemplated in any of sections 195 to 196.1 may provide therein that any other local municipality or any other municipal body responsible for assessment, as the case may be, may join the agreement.
An agreement which provides that it may be joined must determine, or provide a mechanism for determining, all or part of the conditions of joining. Such conditions are effective notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of any general or special Act.
A municipality or a body, as the case may be, by resolution of its council, may join an agreement which provides therefor, on the conditions determined by or pursuant to the agreement.
The municipality or body becomes a party to the agreement once the resolution for joining has received every required approval. It immediately sends a copy of the resolution to the other parties. The agreement is then deemed amended accordingly.
