§ 901-8. Selection of directors
(a) Directors. The three at-large directors shall serve staggered terms of three years. The directors appointed by the respective members shall serve staggered terms of two years. A director shall not serve more than three full consecutive terms.
(b) Subsequent boards. Any voter in any of the members may be nominated to be elected an at-large director by filing a petition signed by 25 voters of the municipalities and filing it with the Secretary of the Authority before 5:00 p.m. on the sixth Monday prior to the day of election, which shall be the filing deadline. Votes for at-large directors shall be tallied by the clerks of the respective members and certified to the Secretary of the Authority within a week of the day of election. The directors receiving a plurality of the votes shall be deemed elected after the vote is confirmed by the Board of Directors.
(c) Appointments. The legislative body shall make its appointment by the end of March in the year in which the term of the preceding director for that member expires. The clerk of each member shall certify its appointment to the Secretary of the Authority.
(d) Oath of office. All directors shall take an oath of office similar to that taken by members of legislative bodies of municipalities, as in 24 V.S.A. § 831. The oath shall be administered by the clerk of the director's municipality.
(e) The Authority shall pay directors such reimbursement of expenses or stipend as the Board shall determine. (Added 2013, No. M-17 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. May 20, 2014.)
