§3906. Organization of single-member district

A municipal power district shall be organized under the following provisions. [1987, c. 141, Pt. A, §6 (NEW).]

1. Trustee.  Upon formation of a district under section 3903, all the affairs of the district must be managed by a board of 3 trustees who must be residents of the district. They hold office as provided in subsection 2 and until their respective successors are elected and qualified. When any trustee ceases to be a resident of the district, that trustee's position becomes vacant. Trustees are subject to Title 30-A, section 2605, concerning conflict of interest.
[ 1995, c. 254, §9 (AMD) .]
2. Election.  Within 60 days after the formation of a district, the municipal officers shall appoint the initial board of trustees, one member for a term of one year, one member for a term of 2 years and one member for a term of 3 years. Each year as the term of a trustee expires, the legal voters of the district, at an annual election, shall elect a successor to serve for a full term of 3 years. The annual election shall be held within the district concurrently with the election of the municipal officers. The trustees shall conspicuously post notice of the election in 2 public places within the district, not less than 7 days before the election. Any vacancy in the board shall be filled by the municipal officers for the unexpired term.
[ 1987, c. 141, Pt. A, §6 (NEW) .]
3. Meetings.  As soon as convenient after each annual election, the trustees shall hold a meeting at the offices of the district, elect a chairman and clerk and adopt a corporate seal. They may choose a treasurer and all other officers and agents for the proper management of the affairs of the district. Other meetings of the trustees may be called by the chairman or by any 2 of the trustees. Trustees shall determine their own compensation. The trustees shall, in the bylaws, determine the number constituting a quorum, but in no event less than half of the total number of trustees.
