The Board of Trustees of the Village of Spring Valley may, in any year it deems necessary, appoint two alternate members to the Planning Board to serve as provided for in this section. Such alternate members shall be appointed for a two-year term of office. The Chairman of the Planning Board shall assign such alternate members as necessary when absence of regular members of said Board or the conflict of interest of regular members of said Board would otherwise prevent seven members of said Board from considering any pending matter. Once designated to serve on a particular matter before the Board, the alternate members shall have the same powers and duties as regular members of the Board until that matter is concluded. Any determination of said Board consisting of an alternate member or members shall have the same weight and be entitled to the same authority as the act or deed of the regular Planning Board, and all laws, statutes and regulations shall apply and be applied with equal force and effect. Such alternate members appointed pursuant to this section shall be paid for their respective services as fixed by resolution of the Board of Trustees.
Vacancies and removals shall be handled as set forth in Village Law § 7-718, as amended.
The compensation of Planning Board members shall be as established by the Board of Trustees from time to time. The Village Board of Trustees shall be authorized to make such appropriations as it may see fit for expenses of the Planning Board.
Powers and duties of the Planning Board shall be as set forth in Village Law § 7-718, as amended.
