WHEREAS, furthermore, pursuant to Section 8 of the Act, upon the payment of all redevelopment project costs, the retirement of obligations, the distribution of any excess monies pursuant to Section 8 of the Act, and final closing of the books and records of the redevelopment project area, the municipality shall adopt an ordinance dissolving the special tax allocation fund for the redevelopment project area and terminating the designation of the redevelopment project area as a redevelopment project area under the Act; and
