Texas Special District Local Laws Code
Sec. § 8132.153
Governing New Districts


The new districts are separate districts and shall be governed as separate districts.


Until the 91st day after the date the board adopts a resolution dividing the district, the board shall continue to act on behalf of the district to wind up the affairs of the district.


The district directors shall act as temporary directors of one of the new districts and shall appoint five individuals to serve as temporary directors of the other new district. A temporary director is not required to own land in either of the new districts. A temporary director shall qualify for and assume office not later than the 90th day after the date the board adopts a resolution dividing the district.


Temporary directors of a new district serve until the new district elects initial permanent directors. The election of directors for each new district shall be held on the next uniform election date in May of an even-numbered year after the date the temporary directors take office that allows sufficient time to comply with the requirements of other law.


The initial permanent directors elected at an election held under Subsection (d) serve staggered terms determined in the manner provided for directors of the original district under Section 8132.024 (Initial Elected Directors; Terms).
