§ 41.09 Director.

(a) Charter governments may provide for appointment and removal of
directors in a manner authorized by such governments. In all other local
governments, the board shall appoint and remove the director. Salaries
and allowable expenses shall be set by the appointing authority.

(b) Each director shall be a psychiatrist or other professional person
who meets standards set by the commissioner for the position. If the
director is not a physician, he shall not have the power to conduct
examinations authorized to be conducted by an examining physician or by
a director of community services pursuant to this chapter but he shall
designate an examining physician who shall be empowered to conduct such
examinations on behalf of such director. A director need not reside in
the area to be served. The director shall be a full-time employee except
in cases where the commissioner has expressly waived the requirement.
