The relationship between the town plan commission and the town board is important. The town board consists of elected officials and is primarily a policy-making body charged with conducting the town’s affairs. The plan commission is an appointed body with the main duty of developing a plan and implementation measures for recommendation to the town board for adoption. The plan commission should therefore function in a more objective fashion than the town board, but must realize that in developing plans and ordinances it operates within a political system where the town board has the final say. Having one or more town board supervisors on the commission can serve as a bridge between the citizens on the commission and the town board.
