Each Commissioner of the Township of Pocono elected or appointed to office shall receive compensation as such Commissioner in the amount of $3,250 per year.
The compensation authorized under this article shall be paid quarterly, for each Commissioner.
In order to receive the compensation established herein, each Commissioner is required to attend a minimum of 75% of all of the Board of Commissioners Sewer meetings, the Regular Board of Commissioners meetings and the advertised Workshop meetings of the Board of Commissioners, which occur in any quarter for which compensation is to be paid. Should any Commissioner fail to attend the established minimum number of meetings, that Commissioner or Commissioners shall not receive this compensation for that quarter, unless their absences are excused as set forth in § 60-2B hereof.
[Added 11-19-2018 by Ord. No. 2018-22]
Should any Commissioner be unable to attend the meetings set forth above, due to medical reasons, such Commissioner may provide a note from a medical provider to the Township Manager, and upon the receipt of such note the Township Manager shall mark that Commissioner as having been excused from such meeting and the excused absence shall not be deemed as a missed meeting to be counted against the required minimum meetings.
[Added 11-19-2018 by Ord. No. 2018-22]
In the event any Commissioner leaves office, for any reason other than removal from office as prescribed by the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, during any quarter of the term that the Commissioner is a duly elected Commissioner, then the amount of compensation that the Commissioner shall receive for that partial quarter shall be prorated for that period of the quarters during which the Commissioner served office. Further, in the event that a Commissioner is appointed to fill a vacant seat on the Board of Commissioners, during any quarter, then the duly appointed Commissioner shall receive compensation based upon the prorated time the Commissioner serves during that quarter. In either event as set forth above, the leaving Commissioner or the appointed Commissioner shall be required to attend the requisite prorated percentage of the meetings, as set forth in § 60-2B, either held in the case of a leaving Commissioner or the meetings remaining in the event of an appointed Commissioner, in order to receive his or her compensation.
