When a county district shall have been established, the governing body shall appoint,
designate or establish an officer, board or body as the administrative head or body
of the district. All matters relating to the membership of such administrative head or body, including
but not limited to, numbers, method of selection, tenure, qualifications and compensation,
shall be determined by the governing body. A member of the governing body or any other county officer or official may be appointed
as administrative head or as a member of the administrative body provided that he
shall receive no additional salary or compensation for such services. The administrative head or body of one or more county districts shall be considered
to be the administrative head or body of an administrative unit of county government. The title of such administrative head or body, if such functions are not conferred
on an existing officer or body, and the name of such administrative unit, if the county
district is made a separate administrative unit of county government, shall be prescribed
by the governing body, and such officer or body shall have all the powers generally
conferred on heads of administrative units by this chapter, not inconsistent with
the provisions of this article, and shall be subject to all of the duties imposed
upon such heads by this chapter, not inconsistent with the provisions of this article.
