WVC 16-13D-6 §16-13D-6. Governing body; appointments; terms of members, voting rights.
The governing body of the authority shall consist of not less than three persons selected by the participating public agencies. Each participating public agency shall appoint at least one and not more than two members. Each member's full term shall be not less than one year nor more than four years and initial terms shall be staggered in accordance with procedures set forth in the agreement provided for in section three of this article and amendments thereto. In the case of an authority which is made up by the agreement of two public agencies, each public agency shall appoint two representatives to the governing body.

The manner of selection of such governing body and terms of office shall be set forth in the agreement provided for in section three of this article and amendments thereto. The governing body of the authority shall elect one of its members as president, one as treasurer and one as secretary.

Each member shall have one vote in any matter that comes before the authority for decision. However, the member agencies shall, in the original agreement establishing the authority, set forth any special weighing of such votes based upon population served, volumes of water purchased, volumes of wastewater treated, numbers of customers, or some other criterion, so as to maintain fairness in the decisions and operations of the authority.
