gives the NCO a specific date to declare the seat vacant.
(3) Elected members who due to health, military service or
other extraordinary circumstances may request an extension
with the Executive Secretary.
Takes into account illness, National Guard Duty, etc. but give
the ES the ability to make a decision based on the needs
(mostly quorum) of the impacted Neighborhood Board.

are necessary to the operation of the Board.
