All projects or matters that fall within the purview of the duties of the planning commission, as herein specified, that may come before the town board of trustees shall be referred to the planning commission for investigation and report before any final action is taken thereon; provided, however, that if the planning commission shall fail to make an investigation and report on any matter or subject referred to it for a period of sixty (60) days, such failure shall be considered a refusal to approve the proposed plan or project, and the board of trustees may thereupon act upon such proposal, plan or project as though such matter had not been referred to the planning commission. (Ord. 1997-3-1, 3-10-1997)
