Elizabeth Township commissioners table appointment proposal
Elizabeth Township commissioners on Monday tabled the first reading of an ordinance restricting commissioners from being appointed to a board, authority or commission or from being employed by the township for one year following the end of their term.
The ordinance was formally proposed during a workshop last month, but commissioners at the time said they wanted to bar relatives of commissioners from township positions as well.
Although commissioners asked Solicitor Matt Racunas if they could just amend the ordinance on the spot during Monday's work session, he advised against it.
“Maybe if it wasn't something that was substantive or if it was just a minor change,” Racunas said. “But adding something like this that I think is an important part, we should make sure that legally we go through the entire process.”
The amended ordinance will have its first read in November.
