(a) The authority shall be governed by a board of directors of three members, elected by the governing board of the Class 1 municipality. Each member of the board shall be a qualified elector of the city. No officer of the state, or of any county, city, or town therein shall, while holding such office, be eligible to serve as a director. The directorships shall be numbered one, two, and three. The first term for directorship one shall be for two years. The first term for directorship two shall be for three years. The first term for directorship three shall be for four years. Irrespective of when the first elections for the three directorships occur, the first terms provided for above, shall commence on, or run from, the first day of the first calendar month next succeeding the month in which this subpart becomes applicable to the city. The terms for all directorships subsequent to the first term, provided therefor, shall be for four years, with the terms commencing upon the expiration of the first terms which are provided for above respectively for the three directorships.

(b) If a director resigns, dies, or becomes incapable or ineligible to act as a director, a successor to serve the unexpired portion of his or her term shall be elected in the manner provided for above. Directors shall be eligible for reelection.

(c) A majority of the members of the board of directors shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business but any meeting of such board may be adjourned from time to time by a majority of the directors present or may be so adjourned by a single director if such director is the only director present at such meeting. No vacancy in the membership of the board of directors shall impair the right of a quorum to exercise all the powers and duties of the authority. The board of directors shall hold regular meetings at least once each month and at such other times as may be provided in the bylaws of the authority and such board may hold other meetings at any time and from time to time, provided that upon call of the chair of the authority or any two directors, a special meeting of the board shall be held. Any matter on which the board of directors is authorized to act may be acted upon at any regular, special, or called meeting. At the request of any director, the vote on any question before the board shall be taken by yeas and nays and entered upon the record. All proceedings of the board shall be reduced to writing by the secretary of the authority, recorded in a well-bound book and open to each director and to the public at all times. Copies of such proceedings, when certified by the secretary of the authority under its seal, shall be received in all courts as evidence of the matters and things therein certified.

(d) Each director shall receive not more than one hundred dollars ($100) monthly for attendance at meetings of the board, which amount shall be set in the bylaws. No director shall receive any compensation from the authority in addition to the foregoing attendance fees, but each director shall be reimbursed for expenses actually incurred by him or her in and about the performance of his or her duties.

(e) Any director of the authority may be removed from office by the governing body in the same manner, and on the same grounds, as provided for in Section 11-43-160, for removal of officers appointed by a city council.
