ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
43-209. Vacancies. (1) Each director shall meet the qualification requirements of section 43-201(3), Idaho Code, during his term of office. Each director shall notify the other directors if circumstances change so that he will no longer meet those requirements during his term of office, or if any of the events specified in section 59-901, Idaho Code, are occurring or have occurred. The remaining directors shall have the authority to determine whether a vacancy in the office of director has occurred upon the director no longer qualifying to serve as a director as provided in section 43-201(3), Idaho Code, or upon the occurrence of any of the events specified in section 59-901, Idaho Code.
(2) If the remaining directors determine that a vacancy in the office of director has occurred as provided in subsection (1) of this section, the remaining directors shall, by resolution, declare that the vacancy shall be filled as herein provided. The remaining directors may allow the disqualified director to remain in office temporarily until his successor is appointed or elected if they determine that they will be unable to conduct the district’s affairs without a director serving in that office. The disqualified director shall not remain in office after the district’s next regular election.
(3) After declaring a vacancy, the remaining directors shall fill such vacancy by appointing thereto a qualified elector under the provisions of section 43-201, Idaho Code. A director appointed to fill a vacancy shall take and subscribe the official oath and execute a bond if one is required in the case of an elected director under section 43-202, Idaho Code, and shall hold his office until the next regular election of said district, at which election a director shall be elected for the remainder of the unexpired term.
(4) Any person filling a vacancy as herein provided shall possess all the rights and powers and is subject to all the liabilities, duties and obligations of the office filled.
