 11    vacancies in the respective offices may occur, they shall  elect  a  president
 12    from their number, and shall appoint a secretary and treasurer who may also be
 13    from  their  number,  all of whom shall hold office during the pleasure of the
 14    board, or for terms fixed by the board. The offices of secretary and treasurer
 15    may be filled by the same person. Certified copies of all  such  appointments,
 16    under the hand of each of the commissioners, shall be forthwith filed with the
 17    clerk  of  the board of county commissioners and with the tax collector of the
 18    county.
 19        As soon as practicable after the organization of the first board of  ceme-
 20    tery maintenance commissioners, and thereafter when deemed expedient or neces-
 21    sary,  such  board  shall  designate  a day and hour on which regular meetings
 22    shall be held and a place for the holding thereof, which shall be  within  the
 23    district.  Regular  meetings  shall be held at least quarterly. The minutes of
 24    all meetings must show  what  bills  are  submitted,  considered,  allowed  or

 29    by the president or a majority of the board, the  order  must  be  entered  of
 30    record, and the secretary must give each member not joining in the order, five

 38    oath for the faithful performance of the duties of the respective offices. The
 39    treasurer shall on his appointment execute and  file  with  the  secretary  an
 40    official  bond  in  such an amount as may be fixed by the cemetery maintenance
 41    board which amount shall be at least sufficient to cover the probable  amounts
 42    of  money coming into his hands and twenty-five percent (25%) thereof in addi-
 43    tion thereto but in no case less than ten thousand dollars ($10,000).
