WY Stat § 22-29-202 (through 2012) What's This?

(a) A vacancy in a district director office shall be filled by appointment by a majority of the remaining directors. However, if a vacancy exists in a majority of the offices of director, or if a majority of the directors cannot agree on an appointment, then notice of the vacancy shall be given to the county commission by either a district director or district member. The county commission shall fill the vacancy within thirty (30) days of being notified or by the time specified in the principal act. If the county commission finds that a vacancy exists in a majority of offices of director or that a majority of the directors cannot agree on an appointment, the county commission may fill the vacancy by acting on its own motion without notice.

(b) All appointments shall be evidenced by an appropriate entry in the minutes of the meeting at which the appointment was made.

(c) An appointee to the office of director shall serve until the next regular election.

(d) The appointed person before undertaking the duties of office shall take an oath of office in accordance with W.S. 22-29-118.

(e) The term of office of an appointed director begins on the day the appointee accepts the appointment unless the letter of resignation of the prior incumbent specifies a later date, which date then shall be the beginning of the appointee's term.

(f) Any vacancy created by failure of the board to comply with W.S. 9-1-507(a)(vii) shall be filled by appointment by the board of county commissioners for the sole purpose of acting as trustee to dissolve the district without election pursuant to W.S. 22-29-401 et seq.
