There shall hereby be created the positions of alternate members, of which there shall be two alternate members for both the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Village Planning Board of the Village of Greenport.

The duties and obligations of an alternate member shall be the same as for every other member of the board on which that alternate member is sitting, including but not limited to regular attendance at meetings of that board.
The term of the alternate members of the Zoning Board of Appeals and the term of the alternate members of the Planning Board shall be for five years. The initial appointments of alternate members to these boards shall be for a term to end on the last day of an administrative year of the Village so as not to exceed the length of the respective term.

Each of the alternate members may participate in the place of any member of the board on which the alternate member has been appointed when the member of the board is not participating in an application due to a conflict of interest.
It shall be within the sole discretion of the Chairperson of the Board as to whether the alternate members to that board shall participate and continue to participate in any particular application once a member of that board has indicated a conflict of interest.
