Annual review of Planning Board By-laws

By-law Item # 2.1The Planning Board shall consist of twelve (12) members: six (6) elected members with the authority to vote, one (1) ex-officio member with the authority to vote who shall be A Selectman designated by the Board of Selectmen, and up to five (5) alternate members with no authority to vote except when filling in for an absent or disqualified elected member and that the wording “twelve(12) members” should remain as is.

In Item #2.1, the suggestion was made to remove “twelve (12) members:”. There was a short discussion of whether or not to remove the words. Most felt that the removal of the words would clarify the sentence. Ms. VanderWende felt it was unwise to create frequent minor changes

Roll call vote (yes to make the clarification; no to leave it as is): Condon, yes; Frosch, yes; Lazar, yes; MacDonald, yes; McEwen, yes; VanderWende, no.
