Recreation Advisory Board
The Recreation Advisory Board consists of up to twelve members. Each member shall be a resident of the Township and be appointed by the Township Committee. The Board members shall be appointed to one-year terms. Appointments to fill vacancies shall be made in the same manner as original appointments, and all such appointments shall be for the unexpired term only. The members shall serve until their respective successors are appointed and qualified. The members shall receive no compensation for their services.
The Township Committee may appoint alternate members in the same manner as specified for regular members: one alternate shall be designated at the time of appointment as Alternate No. 1 and the second alternate as Alternate No. 2. Said alternates shall serve one-year terms. The Township Committee shall fill a vacancy occurring in the alternate’s position for the unexpired term only. Alternate members may participate in the discussion of the proceedings, but may not vote except in the absence or disqualification of a regular member of the Recreation Advisory Board. A vote shall not be delayed in order that a regular member may vote instead of an alternate member. In the event that a choice must be made as to which alternate is to vote, Alternate No. 1 shall vote.
The Board shall reorganize at its first regular meeting. The first regular meeting of the Board shall be held in the month of January of each calendar year.

The Chairperson shall serve for the calendar year in question, or until a successor shall be elected and qualified.
