    (b) The two appointed supervisors shall present to the Secretary of State an application signed by them, which shall set forth that a petition for the creation of the district was filed with the State Natural Resources Conservation Council pursuant to the provisions of this chapter, and that the proceedings specified in this chapter were taken pursuant to such petition; that the application is being filed in order to complete the organization of the district as a public body, corporate and politic, under this chapter; and that the application shall be subscribed to by each of the supervisors.

    (c) The application shall be accompanied by a statement by the State Natural Resources Conservation Council that a petition was filed; that due notice was given and a referendum held on the question of the creation of such district; that a majority of the votes cast in such referendum were in favor of the creation of the district; that thereafter the Council did duly determine that the operation of the proposed district is administratively practicable and feasible. Such statement shall set forth the boundaries of the district as they have been defined by the Council.

    (d) The term of office of an appointed supervisor shall end when his or her elected successor qualifies. (Amended 1959, No. 329 (Adj. Sess.), § 11(c), eff. March 1, 1961; 1967, No. 303 (Adj. Sess.), §§ 8, 16(b), eff. March 22, 1968.)
