The Planning Commission shall consist of five members, who shall be appointed by the Borough Council and shall serve without compensation, except that they shall be reimbursed for expenses incurred in carrying out their Commission duties.
The term of each member of the Planning Commission shall be for four years or until his successor is appointed and qualified; provided, however, that the members of the Planning Commission as it exists at the time of the adoption of this chapter shall continue as the members of the Planning Commission established by this chapter.

The Commission shall elect its own Chairman and Vice Chairman and shall create and fill such other offices as it may determine. Officers shall serve annual terms and may succeed themselves. The Commission may make and alter bylaws and rules and regulations to govern its procedures, consistent with the ordinances of the municipality and the laws of the commonwealth. The Commission shall keep a full record of its business and shall annually make a written report, by March 1 of each year, of its activities to the Borough Council. Interim reports may be made as often as may be necessary or as requested by the Borough Council.
