The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders is scheduled to vote Wednesday on a resolution that would establish term limits for volunteers who serve on autonomous county boards and commissions.
The county has seven such boards and commissions; the Parks Commission, Mosquito Commission, Library Commission, Board of Health, Monmouth County Improvement Authority, Bayshore Regional Outfall Authority and the Brookdale Board of Trustees.
If the resolution is approved, boards whose members have terms of three years will be limited to four consecutive terms. Those boards with four year terms will be limited to three consecutive terms. Boards whose members are appointed for five years will be limited to two terms.
The resolution allows for former board members to apply for different boards when they are term limited out and to reapply to the board they served on after sitting out a full term.
The resolution will go into effect on May 1, 2012, if approved.
