(from Ch. 15 1/2, par. 68.5)
Qualifications of commissioners and removal from office.
No person shall be appointed to the Board of Commissioners of any
Airport Authority who has any financial interest in the establishment or
continued existence thereof or who is a member of the governing body or
an officer or employee of a municipality, a county, or any other unit of
local government, or an elected official of State or federal government, except when the authority is
wholly located within a single county
with a population of less than 40,000, an individual employed by a local school
district may serve as a commissioner.
Should it appear to the Department of Transportation
that any member of
the Board of Commissioners of an airport authority may be disqualified,
or guilty of misconduct or malfeasance in office or unwilling or unable
to act, it shall notify the Board of Commissioners of that fact in
writing and it shall then be the duty of the Board of Commissioners to
require such board member to show cause why he should not be removed
from office. Any such person shall be given a hearing by the Board of
Commissioners and, after such hearing, if the Board of Commissioners
finds such a charge should be sustained, it shall remove the person so
charged from office, and a vacancy shall thereupon exist for the
unexpired term of such office.
