Texas Vernon’s Civil Statutes
Sec. § 3.012
Removal of Trustees


(a)

In accordance with procedures adopted by board rule, a trustee:

(1)

appointed under Section 3.01(b)(1) of this article may be removed by the mayor for cause; and

(2)

elected under Section 3.01(b)(2), (3), or (4) of this article may be removed by the nominations committee for cause.

(b)

It is a cause for removal of a trustee from the board that the trustee:

(1)

does not have at the time of taking office the qualifications required by Section 3.01(b) or (b-1)(1) of this article, subject to Subsection (b-3) of that section;

(2)

does not maintain during service on the board the qualifications required by Section 3.01(b) or (b-1)(1) of this article, subject to Subsection (b-3) of that section;

(3)

is ineligible for membership under Section 3.01(b-1)(2) or (b-2) of this article; or

(4)

is absent from more than 40 percent of the meetings that the trustee is eligible to attend during a calendar year without an excuse approved by a majority vote of the board.

(c)

The validity of an action of the board is not affected by the fact that it is taken when a cause for removal of a trustee exists.

(d)

If the executive director has knowledge that a potential cause for removal exists, the executive director shall notify the chairman of the board of the potential cause. The chairman shall then notify the mayor or nominations committee, as appropriate, that a potential cause for removal exists. If the potential cause for removal involves the chairman, the executive director shall notify the vice chairman or next highest ranking officer of the board, who shall then notify the mayor or nominations committee, as appropriate, that a potential cause for removal exists.
