An Act To Amend the Charter of the Southwest Harbor Water and Sewer District
Sec. 1. P&SL 2015, c. 11, §14, first ¶ is amended to read:
All the affairs of the district must be managed by a board of 3 5 trustees. One of the trustees must be the town manager for the Town of Southwest Harbor. If the town manager position is vacated and in the absence of an acting town manager, the board of selectmen shall appoint a resident of the Town of Southwest Harbor to serve as a trustee until the town manager position is filled. The remaining 2 4 trustees must be residents of the Town of Southwest Harbor who are appointed by the board of selectmen. No member of the board of selectmen may, during the term for which the member is elected, be appointed as a trustee of the district. The appointed trustees shall hold office for terms of 3 years and until their respective successors are appointed and qualified. Upon appointment of the first board, the board of selectmen shall determine the terms of the 2 appointed trustees.
This bill increases from 3 to 5 the number of trustees of the Southwest Harbor Water and Sewer District.
