There is hereby established within the Township of Lumberton an advisory committee which shall be known as the "Lumberton Township Recreation Advisory Committee."
The Recreation Advisory Committee, under the direction of the Recreation Director, shall organize and implement Township recreation events and programs.
Membership. The Recreation Advisory Committee shall be composed of 14 citizens who shall be residents of the Township of Lumberton, plus the Township's Recreation Director, who need not be a resident of the Township. All members shall serve without compensation.
Appointment of members; terms of office; vacancy. All members of the Recreation Advisory Committee shall be appointed by resolution duly adopted by the governing body. The initial Recreation Advisory Committee shall be composed of four individuals who each shall be appointed for a one-year term ending on December 31, 2004; five individuals who each shall be appointed for a two-year term ending on December 31, 2005; and five individuals who shall each be appointed for a three-year term ending on December 31, 2006. Thereafter, all terms to the Recreation Advisory Committee shall be for a three-year period. In the event a vacancy arises, an appointment to fill the vacancy shall be for the balance of the unexpired term of the member whose position has been vacated. A vacancy shall be deemed to exist either through the death, resignation or inability of any member to serve or by removal by the governing body for cause. Any member of the Recreation Advisory Committee shall be deemed to have submitted his resignation upon his failure to attend three consecutive regularly scheduled meetings or at least 50% of the regularly scheduled meetings in any calendar year.
Chairman. The Recreation Advisory Committee shall annually elect a Chairman, such election requiring the affirmative vote of a majority of the Committee. The Chairman shall preside at all meetings of the Committee and timely submit minutes of all meetings to the governing body.
Vice Chairman. The Chairman shall designate a Vice Chairman, subject to approval by a majority of the Recreation Advisory Committee. The Vice Chairman shall, in the absence of the Chairman, carry on the duties of the Chairman until his return or until the appointment of a new Chairman.
Secretary. The Chairman shall designate a Secretary subject to approval by a majority of the Recreation Advisory Committee. The Secretary shall take minutes of all meetings of the Recreation Advisory Committee and provide them to the Chairman for submission to the governing body.
The Committee may adopt necessary rules and bylaws governing the proper administration of its functions and formulate subcommittees for its purposes. Such rules and regulations shall be filed with the governing body.
The Recreation Advisory Committee shall hold monthly meetings throughout the calendar year. The Committee may hold other such meetings as required. Whenever approval by the Committee is required, a majority of those attending the meeting shall be sufficient to take action. A quorum of eight members, however, shall be required in order to constitute a duly authorized meeting.
All recreational programs and policies shall be implemented and administered through the Recreation Director.
