(A)   A majority of the members of the Plan Commission who are qualified to vote shall constitute a quorum.  Action of the Commission shall not be official unless it is authorized at a regular or properly-called special meeting by a majority of the entire membership of the Commission.
   (B)   All members present shall vote on every question unless they are permitted to abstain by the presiding officer, or, in the case of a zoning matter, have disqualified themselves because of a conflict of interest as described in division (C) below.
   (C)   No member of the Commission shall participate in a hearing, discussion, or decision of the Commission upon any zoning matter in which the member has a direct or indirect financial interest.  A “zoning matter” does not include the preparation or adoption of a comprehensive plan.  A member shall declare his or her known conflict of interest.  The Commission shall enter into its records the fact that the member has this disqualification.
   (D)   In the event that a majority vote of the Commission cannot be achieved due to absences, permitted abstentions, or disqualifications, the matter shall be rescheduled for the next regular meeting at the request of any Commission member, a petitioner, or a remonstrator.
