§19-21B-9. Governing body of district; trustees.
The supervisors of the soil conservation district or
districts in which the watershed improvement district is situated
shall be the governing body of the watershed improvement
district. They may appoint three trustees, who shall be owners
of land within the watershed improvement district, to carry on
the business of the watershed improvement district. The trustees
so appointed shall exercise such administrative duties and powers
as may be delegated to them by the governing body of the
district, and they shall hold office at the will of that body. A
trustee shall receive no compensation for his services but may be
reimbursed from funds of the district for actual and necessary
expenses incurred by him in the performance of his duties. The
trustees shall designate a chairman and may, from time to time,
change such designation. One of the trustees may be selected as
treasurer and shall then be responsible for the safekeeping of
all the funds of the watershed improvement district.
When a watershed improvement district lies in more than one
soil conservation district, the supervisors of all such districts
shall act jointly as the governing body of the watershed
