  3.  The board members appointed to a district shall hold office for four-year terms; provided that, initial terms of the representative of the second through the sixth most populous cities in the county shall be of the staggered lengths as set forth in subsection 2 of this section.  On the expiration of the initial terms of appointment and on the expiration of any subsequent term, the resulting vacancies shall be filled by the chief elected official of each of the represented cities and the county.  All vacancies on the board shall be filled in the same manner for the duration of the term being filled.  Board members shall serve until their successors are named and the successors have commenced their terms as board members.  Board members shall be eligible for reappointment.

  4.  The chief elected official of each city or county that has membership on the board of a district may replace a board member representing that elected official's city or county at any time, in that elected official's sole discretion.  Upon this removal, the chief elected official shall appoint another individual to represent that city or county on the board of directors of the district.
