The alternate members' terms shall be for two years, except that Alternate Number One shall be appointed first for a period of two years and Alternate Number Two shall be appointed first for a period of one year so as not more than one alternate membership becomes vacant in any one year. The vacancy which occurs in the alternate membership may be filled by the Mayor and Council for the unexpired term. After the expiration of the initial terms, each alternate member shall be appointed for a term of two years.
C. 
Alternate members are not permitted to act on any matter where they have a direct or indirect personal or financial interest as provided by law. An alternate member may, after public hearing, if requested by the member, be removed by the governing body for cause.
D. 
An alternate member may participate in the discussions of the proceedings of the Board of Health but may not vote, except in the absence or disqualification of a regular member. Any vote of the Board of Health 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 Number One shall always be the one that votes first.
A. 
After the expiration of the terms of office by the original members of its Board,[1] the terms of their successors shall be three years each, commencing on the first day of January annually.
