The Commission shall, after inquiry, ascertain whether or not the term of office has ended. It shall transmit, at the same time, a copy of its decision to the municipality and to the member concerned.
The Commission may, even though it has not been notified as required by the first paragraph, act in accordance with the second paragraph.
Where the Commission ascertains that the term has ended pursuant to the second or third paragraph of section 318, it shall attach a notice reproducing sections 321 to 328 to the copy of its decision.
