§12-4-9. Absence of auditor or treasurer.
When it is necessary for either the auditor or treasurer to be absent, the other shall be informed of the absence. During the absence, the duties of the officer so absent may be performed by the auditor's or treasurer's designee respectively. The absent officer and his sureties shall be liable for any malconduct or neglect of the person acting in his or her place.

Notwithstanding restrictions which may otherwise be provided by law concerning membership on any board, agency or commission, the auditor and treasurer each may designate a representative who is authorized to act for and on their behalf in any and all matters relating to those memberships.
