All decisions of the Board on these licenses are final, subject only to appeal to a court of competent jurisdiction.

2-5-3:  BYLAWS:  (908 2068 2229 2769)  The Board shall make and adopt by resolution its own bylaws, in conformity with applicable statutes and ordinances.  Bylaws shall be reviewed annually for necessary updating.

Members may be excused from voting on previous meetings' minutes if they were absent from that respective meeting.  Being excused from voting must be recognized by the Chairperson and duly noted in the minutes of the present meeting.
