An Antenna Advisory Board is hereby created consisting of five members appointed by the Town Board to serve staggered five-year terms to review ongoing advancements in antenna technology, zoning ordinance compliance with Federal Communications Commission rulings, and offer recommendations on applications to construct antennas and subsequent amendments to and enforcement of this chapter. The creation of such Board shall be consistent with the following §§ 3-2 through 3-6.
The Town Board shall appoint an Antenna Advisory Board consisting of five members and shall designate the Chairperson thereof. When selecting candidates for the Antenna Advisory Board, the Town Board shall weigh and consider geographical representation and endeavor to ensure that membership is representative of the larger population to the extent possible. In the absence of a Chairperson, the Antenna Advisory Board may designate a member to serve as acting Chairperson. In making such appointments, the Town Board may require Antenna Advisory Board members to complete training and continuing education courses to assure competency in the subject area. No person who is a member of the Town Board shall be eligible for membership on such Antenna Advisory Board.
The appointment of members to the Antenna Advisory Board shall be for terms so fixed that one member's term shall expire at the end of the calendar year in which such members were initially appointed. The remaining members' terms shall be so fixed that one member's term shall expire at the end of each year thereafter. At the expiration of each original member's appointment, the reappointed or replacement member shall be appointed for a five-year term.
If a vacancy shall occur otherwise than by expiration of term, the Town Board shall appoint a new member for the unexpired term.
All meetings of the Antenna Advisory Board shall be held at the call of the Chairperson and at such other times as such Board may determine.
In addition to offering, upon request, suggestions regarding implementation and enforcement of this chapter, the Antenna Advisory Board shall publish at least once each year, in February, a summary of the previous year's rulings and notices of proposed rule-making by the Federal Communications Commission affecting the provisions of this chapter or an indication of where such a summary may be obtained, particularly those affecting municipalities within Westchester County, including a list of previously proposed sites and all transmitting antennas installed in the Town of Lewisboro during the prior year, keyed to a map of the Town and illustrating the distribution of said antennas, a list of all pending antenna applications and recommendations to the Town Board regarding any necessary amendments to the Town's Zoning Ordinance as they may relate to this chapter.
