§ 2-2 Declaration of policy.

It is sometimes difficult to maintain a quorum on the Planning Board/Board of Zoning Appeals because members are ill, on extended vacation or find they have a conflict of interest situation on a specific matter before such Board. In such instances, official business cannot be conducted, which may delay or impede adherence to required time lines. The use of alternate members in such instances is hereby authorized pursuant to the provisions of this chapter.

As used in this chapter, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
