Immediately following the appointment and qualification of
the first board of directors, and thereafter at the first meeting of
the board following the first Monday after the first day of January
of each year, the board shall elect a chairman and a vice chairman.
The chairman shall preside at all meetings of the board. He
shall perform such other functions as delegated to him under this
part or under any regulation prescribed by the board. The chairman
may move or second any motion, and shall vote upon all orders,
resolutions, or ordinances passed upon by the board.
In the absence of the chairman at any meeting, the vice
chairman shall preside. In the event of the inability of the chairman
to perform the functions of his office, such functions shall be
performed by the vice chairman with the same force and effect as the
performance of such functions by the chairman.
A majority of the members of the board shall constitute a
quorum for the transaction of business. The adoption of any minute
order, resolution, or ordinance shall require the affirmative votes
of at least three members of the board.
The acts of the board shall be expressed by minute order,
resolution, or ordinance. District ordinances shall be adopted by the
board in substantially the same manner as prescribed for the
adoption of county ordinances by the board of supervisors.
By resolution or ordinance, the board shall prescribe the
time and place of the regular meetings of the board. All meetings of
the board shall be held in compliance with the terms of the Ralph M.
Brown Act (Chapter 9 (commencing with Section 54950), Part 1,
Division 2, Title 5 of the Government Code).
In any particular not otherwise provided for by this part,
the board, by resolution or ordinance, may prescribe any regulation
which it may deem appropriate for the proper conduct of the internal
functions of the board.
Except as otherwise provided in Section 101304, whenever
the signature of any officer or employee of the district is
authorized or required under the provisions of this part, the
signature may be made by the use of a plate or stamp bearing a
facsimile of the signature, or such signature may be reproduced by
any other facsimile method authorized by law.
