(A)   There is hereby created a Library Board of Trustees of the town, which shall be composed of not less than six nor more than 12 members, appointed by the Board of Commissioners to serve a three-year term.  The members shall be residents of the Ayden Library District, defined as the area surrounding the town that is served by the town's utilities, or has a town address, or that is served by a town telephone number exchange.
   (B)   Vacancies among the membership shall be filled by the Board of Commissioners and the successor shall fill the unexpired term of the vacant member. The Board of Commissioners may remove a trustee at any time for incapacity, unfitness, misconduct, or neglect of duty.
   (C)   No member shall serve longer than three consecutive full terms.  Individuals serving three consecutive full terms must sit off the Board for one calendar year before eligible for reappointment. This policy may be waived if the Board of Commissioners determines that the removal of the individual made ineligible by this statute would place the functioning of the Board at a disadvantage or if the town does not receive any applications from qualified individuals after advertising for two consecutive weeks.
