[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Council of the Town of Monroe 1-13-1977 (Ch. 25 of the 1976 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
Pursuant to Chapter 127 (§ 8-31a et seq.) of the Connecticut General Statutes, the Town of Monroe hereby adopts said Chapter 127 as amended from time to time and joins in the creation of a regional planning agency for the Bridgeport region as defined by the Secretary of the Office of Policy and Management pursuant to state statute.
The Town of Monroe shall have two representatives on said agency pursuant to Chapter 127 as aforesaid. The Town Council of the Town of Monroe and the Planning and Zoning Commission of the Town of Monroe are each hereby authorized to appoint to the Regional Planning Agency one elector of the Town of Monroe for a term of two years. Appointees under this section shall continue to serve after expiration of their respective terms and until their successors are appointed, qualified and take office. Appointees may be reappointed for successive terms.
Any representative appointed hereunder to the Regional Planning Agency who is absent from three consecutive regular meetings of the Regional Planning Agency and any intervening duly called special meetings thereof may be considered to have resigned said Regional Planning Agency, and the appointing authority may, upon majority vote thereof, a quorum being present, declare a vacancy in said body until the term expires; provided, however, that the requirements of this section may be waived where illness or other extenuating circumstances make it impossible for a representative to meet the attendance requirements of this section.
