HEALTH AND SAFETY CODE
SECTION 33110-33115


33110. When the legislative body adopts an ordinance declaring the
need for an agency, the mayor or chairman of the board of
supervisors, with the approval of the legislative body, shall appoint
five persons, who are resident electors of the community, and may
include tenants of a public housing authority created pursuant to
Part 2 (commencing with Section 34200) of this division, as members
of the agency. The legislative body may, either at the time of the
adoption of the ordinance declaring the need for an agency or at any
time thereafter, adopt an ordinance increasing to seven the number of
members to be appointed to the agency. Upon the exercise of such
option by the legislative body, the membership of the agency shall
remain at seven.

33111. A member may not be an elective officer or an employee of
the community, but, notwithstanding any other law, he may be a
member, commissioner, or employee of any other agency or authority
of, or created for, the community.33112. Three of the members first appointed shall be designated to
serve the terms of one, two, and three years, respectively, from the
date of their appointments and two shall be designated to serve for
terms of four years from the date of their appointments. If and when
the membership of the agency is increased to seven, one of the
additional members shall be appointed to a term, or unexpired portion
thereof, which is concurrent with the term then held by the member
originally appointed for a term of three years or by his successor,
and the other additional member shall be appointed to a term, or
unexpired portion thereof, which is concurrent with the term then
held by the member originally appointed for a term of two years or by
his successor. Their successors shall be appointed for four-year
terms. Vacancies occurring during a term shall be filled for the
unexpired term. A member shall hold office until his successor has
been appointed and has qualified.

33113. The appointing officer shall designate the first chairman
from among the members. When there is a vacancy in such office, the
agency shall elect a chairman from among its members. Unless
otherwise prescribed by the legislative body, the term of office as
chairman is for the calendar year, or for that portion remaining
after he is designated or elected.

33114. Members shall receive their actual and necessary expenses,
including traveling expenses incurred in the discharge of their
duties. They may receive such other compensation as the legislative
body prescribes.33114.5. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, whenever the
legislative body of a city having a population of less than 200,000
or the legislative body of a county declares itself to be the agency
pursuant to Section 33200, the compensation provided for in Section
33114 shall not exceed thirty dollars ($30) per member for each
meeting of the agency attended by the member. No member shall
receive compensation for attending more than four meetings of the
agency during any calendar month. In addition, members shall receive
their actual and necessary expenses incurred in the discharge of
their duties.33115. For inefficiency, neglect of duty, or misconduct in office,
a member may be removed by the appointing officer, but only after he
has been given a copy of the charges at least 10 days prior to a
public hearing on them and has had an opportunity to be heard in
person or by counsel. If a member is removed, a record of the
proceedings and the charges and findings shall be filed in the office
of the clerk of the community.
