Publication and posting shall be made at least 30 days and not more than 40 days before the meeting, not counting the day of the meeting. The warning shall be recorded in the office of the clerk before being posted.

    (b) Any meeting called for the purpose of considering a bond issue shall be warned in accordance with the provisions of 24 V.S.A. § 1755.

    (c) The board of directors shall have the same authority and obligation to warn or call meetings of the union school district as selectboard members have to warn or call town meetings.

    (d) When a person whose duty it is to warn a district meeting neglects to do so for ten days after application is made as above provided, he or she shall forfeit to the district $ 20.00 for each ten days' neglect, to be recovered in an action on this statute.
