Act 199 of 1929


123.43 Community center; board of directors; terms; vacancy.

Sec. 3.

(1) If a village or township votes to establish a community center, the governing body of the village or township shall appoint 6 directors for boards established before the effective date of the amendatory act that added subsection (2) and 7 directors for boards established on or after the effective date of the amendatory act that added subsection (2) who shall hold office until their successors are elected and qualified. For boards established before the effective date of the amendatory act that added subsection (2), the governing body of the village or township shall appoint 1 additional director who shall hold office until his or her successor is elected and qualified. At the next regular election there shall be elected a community board of 7 directors, 2 for 1 year, 2 for 2 years, and 3 for 3 years, and then annually there shall be elected the number of directors whose terms have expired, who shall hold office for 3 years or until their successors are elected and qualified. Alternatively, the governing body of a village or township may by resolution provide that at the next regular election, and then every 2 years, there shall be elected a community board of 7 directors, who shall hold office for 2 years or until their successors are elected and qualified.

(2) If a village or township initially elected directors for 3-year terms as described in subsection (1), its governing body may subsequently adopt a resolution providing for the election every 2 years of directors for 2-year terms. The resolution shall provide for the transition of the elective terms from 3 to 2 years as follows:

(a) The offices of those directors whose terms first expire after the adoption of the resolution shall be filled at the next scheduled local, state, or federal election by the election of that number of directors who shall hold office for 2 years, and then every 2 years for 2 years or until their successors are elected and qualified.

(b) The offices of those directors whose terms next expire after the adoption of the resolution shall be filled in the year following the election in subdivision (a) by the election of that number of directors who shall hold office for 1 year, and then every 2 years for 2 years or until their successors are elected and qualified.

(c) The offices of those directors whose terms last expire after the adoption of the resolution shall be filled as described in subdivision (a).

(3) The directors shall serve without compensation. A vacancy in the board of directors occasioned by a removal, a resignation, or otherwise shall be reported to the governing body of the village or township, which shall proceed to appoint a director to fill the vacancy.
