MINERAL RIDGE -- Weathersfield Township trustees will consider an amendment to the zoning ordinance approved by the zoning commission this week that would add two alternate members to both the zoning commission and the board of zoning appeals.
Trustees also will set a rate of pay for the alternates, should they approve the change, said Sherri Craver, assistant zoning inspector.
Each board has five members. The alternates would sit in place of missing members to prevent meetings from being canceled because of a lack of quorum.
