Public hearings by the planning commission shall be conducted before a quorum of the planning commission. The planning commission may establish its own rules for the conduct of public hearings, and the member of the planning commission presiding at such hearing is hereby empowered to administer oaths to any person testifying before it.
A summary of all pertinent testimony offered at a public hearing and the names of persons testifying shall be recorded and made a part of the permanent files of the case.
If, for any reason, testimony of any case set for public hearing cannot be completed on the day set for such hearing, the planning commissioner presiding at such public hearing may, before the adjournment or recess thereof, publicly announce the time and place to and at which such hearing will be continued, and such announcement shall serve as sufficient notice of such continuance and without recourse to the form of public notice as provided for in the first instance. (1962 Code § 10-857; amd. Ord. 95-O-2239, eff. 7-7-1995)
