If one or more members of a board of county commissioners are petitioners for an improvement or own land that will be taken, benefited, or damaged by the improvement petitioned for, the clerk of the board of county commissioners shall notify the judge of the court of common pleas of the county who shall within ten days appoint as many disinterested freeholders of the county as are necessary to take the place of the interested members.  The appointees shall not be related by blood or affinity to the interested members.  They shall before acting be sworn to perform faithfully and impartially the duties of the members in the matter of the improvement, which oath shall be signed by them and by the officer before whom the same is taken and filed with the clerk.  Upon appointment and qualification the appointee shall, in the proceedings upon the improvement, perform all the duties of the disqualified members and shall receive from the general drainage improvement fund the same per diem rate as the disqualified member receives, as shown by the record for such services, and the amount so paid shall be costs taxed in the proceedings.
