The members of the Solid Waste Advisory Board shall receive no compensation for their time, but said members shall be reimbursed for any expenses incurred in the performance of their duties so long as said expenses have been previously approved by the township governing body. The Solid Waste Advisory Board shall keep complete and accurate records of any moneys expended in this regard in order for said reimbursement to be made.
The Commission shall have no right to any employees or to retain professional services. The governing body, however, upon request by the Solid Waste Advisory Board, will provide reasonable resources, which can include but not be limited to copies of pertinent documents, technical assistance and secretarial services.
