Transportation (TRA) CHAPTER 61-A, ARTICLE 2-D
§ 45. Vacancies and removals. A vacancy occurring other then by reason
of the expiration of the term of a member of the Utica transit authority
shall be filled for the unexpired term. The governing body of the
municipality or when two or more municipalities are acting jointly, the
governing bodies thereof jointly may remove a member of the Utica

charges against him and an opportunity to be heard in person or by
counsel in his own defense at a public hearing. In the event of removal,
the governing body of such municipality or the governing bodies of such
municipalities, as the case may be, shall file with the commissioner a
record of the proceedings together with a copy of the charges made
against the members and its findings thereon, pending the determination
of charges against a member, the governing body of such municipality or
the governing bodies of such municipalities, as the case may be, may
suspend him from office.
