The Town Board of the Town of South Bristol, County of Ontario, State of New York, hereby creates a Board of Appeals to consist of five (5) regular members and two (2) alternate members. The members and alternate members and the Chairperson of such Board of Appeals shall be named by resolution of the Town Board. The Town Board may provide for compensation to be paid to experts, clerks and a secretary and provide for such other expenses as may be necessary and proper, not exceeding the appropriation made by the Town Board for such purpose.
The terms of appointment for all members now holding office shall be for the term as established in the resolution appointing such members. Upon expiration of existing terms, all reappointed members or newly appointed members shall hold office for a period of five (5) years.
Alternate members shall be designated at the time of appointment by the Town Board as Alternate No. 1 and Alternate No. 2. The initial term of office of Alternate No. 1 shall be for five (5) years and the initial term of office for Alternate No. 2 shall be three (3) years. Upon expiration of such initial terms, the successive terms shall be for five (5) years.
No regular members or alternate members shall hold elective office in the Town of South Bristol. No member or alternate member of the Board of Appeals shall be permitted to act on any matter in which he or she has either directly or indirectly any personal or financial interest.
Alternate members may participate in discussion of the proceedings but may not vote except in the absence or disqualification of a regular member. A vote shall not be delayed in order that a regular member may vote instead of an alternate member. In the event that a choice must be made as to which alternate member is to vote, Alternate No. 1 shall vote. No more than five (5) votes shall be cast for any matter. In the event that one (1) or more alternate members shall be necessary to create a Board of five (5) members for any application, the absent regular member(s) shall not thereafter vote in any manner with respect to that application.
The foregoing provisions shall, where applicable, specifically amend § 267 of the Town Law of the State of New York. Where not so amended, § 267 shall remain in full force and effect.
