Consolidated Human Services Agencies: Question 8
8. May a consolidated human services board member be removed from office before his or her term is up?
A member of a consolidated human services board may be removed from office by the board of county commissioners for any of the following reasons:
- Commission of a felony or other crime involving moral turpitude
- Violation of a state law governing conflict of interest
- Violation of a written policy adopted by the boards of county commissioners of each county in the district
- Habitual failure to attend meetings
- Conduct that tends to bring the office into disrepute
- Failure to maintain qualifications for appointment (e.g., maintaining licensure in a profession, being a county resident, etc.)
Before it acts to remove a member, the board of county commissioners must give the member written notice of the basis for removal and provide an opportunity for the member to respond.
