An Act To Amend the Anson and Madison Water District Charter

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. P&SL 2011, c. 6, §4, sub-§3, 2nd blocked ¶  is amended to read:

When the term of office of a trustee expires, the trustee's successor is elected by a plurality vote of the voters of the Town of Madison or the Town of Anson, as applicable. For the purpose of election, a special election must be called and held on the date established by the trustees. The election must be called by the trustees of the district in the same manner as town meetings are called and, for this purpose, the trustees are vested with the powers of municipal officers of towns. A vacancy is filled in the same manner for the unexpired term by a special election called by the trustees of the district. The trustees may call a special election to fill a vacancy for an unexpired term in the same manner as special elections are called for expired terms pursuant to this paragraph, or the trustees may appoint a person eligible to fill the vacancy. The person must be recommended by the trustees of the district from the town in which the vacancy occurs and shall fill the vacancy until the next annual meeting of that town, at which time the vacancy must be filled by special election.

Effective 90 days following adjournment of the 126th Legislature, Second Regular Session, unless otherwise indicated.
