School District, and one shall be appointed for a period of one year,
alternately, by the board of education of the North Syracuse Central
School District and the town board of the town of Salina, Cicero or

the members initially appointed by the mayor shall serve for a term
ending December thirty-first, two thousand fourteen. Two of the members
initially appointed by the mayor shall serve for a term ending December

the mayor, the member appointed by the town board of the town of Dewitt,
and the member appointed by the board of education of the East Syracuse
Minoa Central School District, shall serve for a term ending December

town board of the town of Salina, Cicero or Clay, or by the board of

appointed by the town board of the town of Cicero and shall serve for a
term ending December thirty-first, two thousand thirteen. Following the
expiration of such member's one year term, the subsequently appointed
member shall be appointed by the town board of the town of Salina.
Following the expiration of such member's one year term, the
subsequently appointed member shall be appointed by the town board of
the town of Clay. Following the expiration of such member's one year
term, the subsequently appointed member shall be appointed by the board
of education of the North Syracuse Central School District. Thereafter,
each subsequent member shall be appointed alternately by each town or
the board of education in the same order as the initial appointments.
The mayor shall designate one of the eleven members to serve as
chairperson of the authority. With the exception of the member appointed
by the board of education of the North Syracuse Central School District
or by the town board of the town of Salina, Cicero or Clay, who shall
serve a one year term, and those initial appointees whose terms are
three years or less, each member shall serve a term of four years.

2. All members shall continue to hold office until their successors
are appointed and qualify. Vacancies shall be filled in the manner
provided for original appointment. Vacancies, occurring otherwise than
by expiration of term of office, shall be filled for the unexpired
terms. Members may be removed from office for the same reasons and in
the same manner as may be provided by law for the removal of officers of
the city. The members of the authority shall receive no compensation for
their services but shall be reimbursed for all their actual and
necessary expenses incurred in connection with the carrying out of the
purposes of this title. The powers of the authority shall be vested in
and be exercised by the members of the authority at a meeting duly
called and held and a majority of directors shall constitute a quorum.
No action shall be taken except pursuant to the favorable vote of at
least a majority of members. The members of the authority may delegate
to one or more of its members, officers, agents or employees such powers
and duties as it may deem proper.

3. The authority shall have a regional advisory board consisting of
eight non-voting members. The membership shall include one member
appointed by the county executive of Oneida county, one member each
appointed by the chairpersons of the county legislatures of Onondaga,
Oswego, Cortland, Cayuga, and Jefferson counties, one member appointed
by the chairperson of the board of supervisors of Madison county, and
one member appointed by the Common Council of the City of Syracuse.
Members will be appointed for two year terms and may be reappointed.

4. Appointments to the authority and to the non-voting advisory board
shall be geographically diverse and include representatives from
business, finance, and labor.

5. Notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of any general, special
or local law, ordinance, resolution or charter, no officer, member or
employee of the state or of any public corporation shall forfeit his or
her office or employment by reason of his or her acceptance of
appointment as a member, officer or employee of the authority, nor shall
service as such member, officer or employee be deemed incompatible or in
conflict with such office, membership or employment.

6. All members of the authority will be required to comply with the
city of Syracuse code of ethics and to complete all disclosure forms
required by said code of ethics.

7. The authority shall continue for a term of one year after all its
bonds have been fully paid and discharged. Upon termination of the
existence of the authority, all of its rights and property shall pass to
and be vested in the city.
