EXPLANATION:  Proposed amendment to Section 2-292(b) of Chapter 2, Article VI of the Wellington Code of Ordinances.  
 
This proposed amendment relates to the removal of board and committee members for reasons other than absenteeism and failure to maintain the requirements for being a board member.
