(A)   All meetings of the Board of Adjustment shall be held at a regular place and shall be open to the public.  A quorum of 4 members, including alternates shall be present at the designated meeting place before a vote is taken or before a final disposition of any appeal is made upon which the Board is required to pass.  The Board shall keep minutes of its proceedings, show the vote of each member upon each question, or if absent or failing to vote, an indication of the fact; and the final disposition of appeals shall be by recorded resolutions indicating the reasons of the Board therefor, all of which shall be public record.  In the event a regular member shall be absent or temporarily disqualified, an alternate member shall be notified to serve in the place of the regular member.
   (B)   Each alternate member, while attending any regular or special meeting of the Board and serving in the absence of a regular member, has and may exercise all the powers and duties of a regular member.
