There is created a North Dakota atmospheric resource board which shall be a division of the state water commission. The board is composed of the director of the state aeronautics commission, a representative of the department of environmental quality, the state engineer, and one additional board member from each of seven districts established by section 61-04.1-05. The governor shall initially appoint one board member for each of the seven districts from a list of three candidates given to the governor by weather modification authorities in each district and:
1. When the term of office of any board member from any district is about to expire.
2. When a vacancy has occurred, or is about to occur, in the term of office of a board member from any district for any reason other than expiration of term of office.
Beginning on July 1, 1983, the term of office for the board shall be arranged so that not less than three nor more than four terms shall expire on the first day of July of each odd-numbered year. Therefore, board members appointed on July 1, 1983, from districts II, IV, and VI shall serve for two-year terms, and board members appointed on July 1, 1983, from districts I, III, V, and VII shall serve for four-year terms. Thereafter, board members from each district shall serve for a four-year term of office except in the event the governor shall appoint a member for an unexpired term, in which case the member shall serve only for the unexpired portion of the term. In the event any district fails to furnish a list to the governor, or if there are no weather modification authorities under this chapter within a district, the governor shall appoint a board member of the governor's choice residing within such district.
