town law relating to a sewer district in a town shall apply to such
district, except as herein otherwise provided: The district shall be
governed by a board of sewer district commissioners consisting of three
persons, who shall serve until a vacancy shall occur by reason of death,
resignation or removal from office. The town board of the town of
Kirkland may remove a member of the board for inefficiency, neglect of
duty or misconduct in office after a public hearing on not less than ten
days' written notice and an opportunity to be heard in person or by
counsel. A vacancy in office of a commissioner shall be filled by
appointment by the town board from a list of nominations of not less
than three persons made by the remaining commissioners. Each
commissioner appointed by the town board must be a resident taxpayer of
the sewer district or in lieu thereof an officer, trustee or member of
the faculty of Hamilton college. Such commissioners shall select one of
their number as chairman and another as secretary. Each commissioner,
before entering upon the duties of his office, shall take the
constitutional oath of office and execute to the town of Kirkland and
file with the town clerk an official undertaking in such sum and with
such sureties as the town board from time to time may direct. Such
commissioners may be paid for their services an annual amount, as
determined by the town board, up to two thousand dollars. Such
compensation shall be deemed an expense of the district. The board of
sewer district commissioners of such district shall have all the powers
and be subject to the duties and responsibilities of district
commissioners elected pursuant to the provisions of article thirteen of
