to caucus by county commissioner districts at a specified date, time and place for
the purpose of electing at least one municipal officer from each district as a member
of the budget advisory committee; except that, in 1992, at least 3 municipal officers
must be selected from each district unless the municipal officers of a district decide
that another person from that district would be better qualified. A municipality
may not be represented by more than one officer at a time. The county commissioner
shall serve as nonvoting moderator for that district caucus. Nominations must be
received from the floor. The nominee receiving the most votes is approved as a budget
advisory committee member except that, in 1992, each caucus shall elect 3 members.
The names of those elected by the caucus must be recorded and forwarded to the county
commissioners. [2007, c. 663, §23 (AMD).]
B. Budget advisory committee members serve 3-year terms except that, in 1992, one member
from each district must be elected for a one-year term, one member for a 2-year term
and one member for a 3-year term. If a budget advisory committee member ceases to
be a municipal officer during the term of membership, that committee member vacates
membership and the next district caucus shall elect a qualified municipal officer
to serve for the remainder of the unexpired term. [1991, c. 777, §1 (NEW).]
A municipal officer elected as a member of the budget advisory committee may name
a designee to serve on the committee.
