(A) When a Township Board member or other elective or appointive official questions the applicability of a provision of any township policy or procedure to a particular situation, they may apply to the Township Board for a decision. The Township Board member or other elective or appointive official will have the opportunity to present his or her interpretation of the facts at issue and the applicable provisions of the policy or procedure before such advisory decision is made. The Board may modify policy in light of facts presented.
(B) A Township Board member or other elective or appointive official whose conduct does not comply with any township policy or procedure, including its Code of Ethical Conduct, may be subject to actions including, but not limited to, internal reprimand, formal Board censure, loss of a non-statutory committee assignment or budget restriction, where such restriction is not prohibited by statute.
(C) Violations of township policy may also be considered by the Township Board as just cause for removing members of appointive township boards and commissions from office, where removal is authorized by law.
