    Chapter 3: Establishment of local board

      Section: 26:3-9: Composition of local board in townships of 20,000 or less.

26:3-9. a. The local board in every township having a population of not more than 20,000 inhabitants may be composed of the members of the township committee, the township assessor or, if the township has a board of assessors, the township clerk, and one physician or school nurse, to be appointed by the township committee for a term of three years from the time of his appointment and until the successor is appointed. Upon the consent of the prospective appointee, the township committee may appoint, as the physician or school nurse appointment, the township physician or a school nurse to the local board, notwithstanding that the physician or nurse is not a resident of the township. The township committee may by ordinance provide for the appointment of not more than two alternate members. Alternate members shall be designated at the time of appointment as "Alternate No. 1" and "Alternate No 2." The term of the alternate members shall be for two years, except that of the first two alternate members appointed, one shall be appointed for a term of one year so that the term of not more than one alternate member shall expire in any one year. A vacancy occurring otherwise than by expiration of term shall be filled by the appointing authority for the unexpired term only. Alternate members may participate in discussions of the proceedings but may not vote except in the absence or disqualification of a regular member. 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 member is to vote, Alternate No. 1 shall vote.

b. Any such township may by ordinance adopt the provisions of subdivision B of this article and thereafter shall be subject to the provisions thereof and shall not be subject to the provisions of this subdivision of this article.
