Tex. Local Gov't Code Section 324.041
Composition and Appointment of Board


A district is governed by a board composed of seven members.


The commissioners court shall appoint the members of the board.


A board member must be a citizen of the United States and must reside in the county. Four of the board members must reside, own property, or own a business in the district. One board member must live outside the district.


A board member may not be an officer or employee of the county in which the district is created or of a municipality in that county.


Three members of the initial board serve one-year terms and four serve two-year terms. The members shall draw lots to determine who serves the one-year terms. Thereafter, each director is appointed for a term of two years from the date of the director’s appointment.


If a vacancy occurs on the board, the commissioners court shall appoint a person to fill the vacancy for the unexpired term.


The commissioners court shall file a certificate of the appointment of each board member with the county clerk. The certificate is conclusive evidence of the proper appointment of the board member.


A board member may not serve more than four consecutive full terms.
