Subject to the alternate plan enumerated in section 341A.3, there is created in each county a civil service commission composed of three members. One member shall be appointed by the county board of supervisors, one member shall be appointed by the presiding district court judge of each county, and one member shall be appointed by the county attorney of each county. Commission members shall be appointed within sixty days after August 15, 1973. Appointees to the commission shall be residents of the county for at least two years immediately preceding appointment, and shall be electors. Terms of office shall be six years, however, the initial members of the commission shall be appointed as follows:
The member appointed by the board of supervisors shall serve for a period of two years, the member appointed by the county attorney shall serve for a period of four years, and the member appointed by the district court judge shall serve for a period of six years.
Any member of the commission may be removed by the appointing authority for incompetence, dereliction of duty, malfeasance in office, or for other good cause, however, no member of the commission shall be removed until apprised in writing of the nature of the charges against the member and a hearing on such charges has been held before the board of supervisors. In the event a vacancy occurs in the commission for any reason other than expiration of the term, an appointment to fill the vacancy for the unexpired term shall be made in the same manner as the original appointment.
A majority vote of the membership of the commission shall be sufficient to transact the business of the commission. Not more than two commissioners shall be members of the same political party. Commissioners shall hold no elective or other appointive public office during their terms of appointment to the commission. Commissioners shall serve without compensation but shall be reimbursed for necessary expense and mileage incurred in the actual performance of their duties.
