AGO 1963 NO. 54 > Sep 9 1963

(1) Counties in which the justice court act of 1961 is not presently in effect may put the act into effect at any time, although the term of office of existing justices of the peace might thereby be terminated. (2) When a justice of the peace, under the 1961 justice court act, serves in a municipal department or as a municipal judge, the city pays a portion of his salary as justice of the peace, not an additional salary.
