§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 improvement district.
