48-1720. Division of district; assignment of directors

A. At any time the board of directors may divide a district into divisions not more in number than the number of members of the board, and thereafter members of the board shall be elected from the different divisions according to the jurisdiction of the retiring members.

B. When a district is divided into separate divisions, the board shall assign by lot, or in some other equitable manner, the members then in office to different divisions, conforming as nearly as possible to the residence of the present members, and thereafter members shall be elected according to the division from which a member's term has expired.

C. The division of the district into divisions shall be as equal as practical with respect to territory and population but in the division the board shall have exclusive discretion. A member to be qualified to hold the office of member of the board of directors shall thereafter be a qualified elector and freeholder of the division which he represents.
