(a)   If a member of the retirement board shall cease to be a firefighter in the employ of the city, or should any appointed trustee, not serving as the mayor, or the citizen trustee fail to attend scheduled meetings of the board for three consecutive meetings, unless in each case excused for cause by the remaining trustees attending the meeting, the trustee shall be considered to have resigned from board membership and the board shall by resolution declare the office vacated as of the date of adoption of the resolution. Any vacancy occurring in the office of trustee shall be filled within 90 days from and after the date the vacancy occurs, for the unexpired term, in the same manner as the office was previously filled.
   (b)   Except for the mayor, if a member of the retirement board is unable to attend two consecutive meetings because of a leave of absence from duties, the remaining board members by unanimous vote may appoint a temporary replacement eligible in accordance with § 39.356. The appointment is effective until the term expires or the board member returns.
