203.70 Legal Counsel

The Board, at the annual meeting, shall appoint an attorney to represent the corporation and advise the Board. The attorney shall attend regular and special meetings of the Board when requested and be available for consultation as needed.

Because it is often necessary to consult legal counsel and receive its expert opinion as part of background information to be used by the Board in making decisions and because at times the District may be involved in litigation or other legal matters, the Superintendent/designee, the Board Secretary, or President of the Board are authorized to seek counsel’s services as needed. However, the Board should be kept informed of legal matters that are other than routine and of any legal services that may involve unusual expense to the District.

Individual Board members are expected to consult District legal counsel only when the Board has given permission for such consultation. Otherwise, the Board member will pay any legal fees that may result.
