In any township which adopts zoning regulations the board of township trustees shall appoint a
township board of zoning appeals composed of five members who shall be residents of the unincorporated territory
in the township included in the area zoned. The board of township trustees may appoint two alternate members to the
township board of zoning appeals, for terms to be determined by the board of township trustees.
An alternate member shall take the place of an absent regular member at any meeting of the board of zoning appeals,
according to procedures prescribed by resolution by the board of township trustees. An alternate member shall meet the
same appointment criteria as a regular member. When attending a meeting on behalf of an absent member, the alternate member
may vote on any matter on which the absent member is authorized to vote. The terms of all regular members shall be of such length
and so arranged that the term of one member will expire each year. Each regular or alternate member shall serve until the member's successor is appointed and qualified.
Members shall be removable for the same causes and in the same manner as provided by section 519.04 of the Revised Code.
Vacancies shall be filled by the board of township trustees and shall be for the unexpired term. The members may be allowed their expenses, or
such compensation, or both, as the board of township trustees may approve and provide.
The board of zoning appeals may, within the limits of the moneys appropriated by the board of township trustees for the purpose, employ such executive, professional, technical, and other assistants as it considers necessary.
