In addition to the regular members of the Franklin Township Sewerage Authority, there may be appointed two alternate members. If alternate members are appointed, the following shall apply. Alternate members shall be designated as "Alternate No. 1" and "Alternate No. 2," which members shall serve during the absence or disqualification of any regular member or members. The order in which such alternates shall serve shall be Alternate No. 1 and then Alternate No. 2. The initial terms of the alternates shall be Alternate No. 1, five years, and Alternate No. 2, four years.
