The Town Board may from time to time on its own motion, or on petition, or on recommendation of the Planning Board, amend, supplement, or repeal the regulations and provisions of this chapter, after public notice and hearing.
Every such proposed amendment or change, whether initiated by the Town Board or by petition, shall be referred to the Planning Board for report prior to scheduling the public hearing hereinafter provided for. If the Planning Board shall fail to file such report within a reasonable time, it shall be conclusively presumed that the Planning Board has approved the proposed amendment, supplement, or change.

If the Wayne County Planning Board fails to report within 30 days after receipt of a full statement of such referred matter, the Town Board may act without such report. If the Wayne County Planning Board disapproves of the proposed amendment, supplement, change or modification, or recommends modification of the proposal of the Town of Lyons, the Town Board shall not act contrary to such disapproval or recommendation except by a vote of a majority plus one of all the members thereof and after the adoption of a resolution fully setting forth the reasons for such contrary act.
