§ 14. Members of the Board shall hold office until their respective successors have been
appointed and qualified. Any member may resign from his office, to take effect when his successor has been
appointed and has qualified. The Governor and the Mayor, respectively, may remove any member of the Board appointed
by him in case of incompetency, neglect of duty, or malfeasance in office. They shall give him a copy of the charges against him and an opportunity to be publicly
heard in person or by counsel in his own defense upon not less than ten days' notice. In case of failure to qualify within the time required, or of abandonment of his
office, or in case of death, conviction of a crime or removal from office, his office
shall become vacant. Each vacancy shall be filled for the unexpired term by appointment in like manner,
and with like regard as to the place of residence of the appointee, as in case of
expiration of the term of a member of the Board.
