  2.  The commissioners of the authority annually shall elect a chair and vice chair from among the commissioners; however, the first chair shall be designated by the mayor for a term of one year.  The mayor or chief executive officer of the municipality shall serve as the co-chair of the authority.  The authority may employ an executive director, technical experts, and such other officers, agents, and employees, permanent and temporary, as it may require, and shall determine their qualifications, duties, and compensation.  For such legal services as it may require, an authority may call upon the chief law officer of the municipality or may employ its own counsel and legal staff.

  3.  A commissioner of an authority shall receive no compensation for his or her services, but may receive the necessary expenses, including traveling expenses, incurred in the discharge of his or her duties.  Each commissioner shall hold office until a successor has been appointed.

  4.  For inefficiency or neglect of duty or misconduct in office, a commissioner of an authority may be removed by the mayor or chief executive officer of the municipality.
