§ 405-7. Appointment
The purposes, powers, duties, and responsibilities of the District shall be exercised by a Board of Commissioners consisting of one commissioner and one alternate commissioner from each member municipality. The alternate commissioner shall represent the municipality at all meetings of the Board of Commissioners that the regular commissioner is unable to attend and shall have all the rights and privileges of a regular commissioner. The legislative bodies of member municipalities whose beginning letter begins with A through K shall appoint their respective commissioners and alternate commissioners in even-numbered years and the legislative bodies of member municipalities whose beginning letter begins with L through Z shall appoint their respective commissioners and alternate commissioners in odd-numbered years. The legislative body of each municipality by majority vote, may remove its appointed representative during the two-year term for stated reasons. Any vacancy on the Board of Commissioners shall be filled by the legislative body of the respective member municipality; provided, however, in the event vacancies exist for both the commissioner and the alternate commissioner for a particular municipality, the number of votes attributable to such municipality shall not be counted for purposes of determining the number of votes eligible to be cast by the Board of Commissioners during the period of such vacancy.
