Municipal authorities are governed by a board whose members are appointed by the incorporating local government. The board members have overlapping five-year terms. When an authority is first created some of the original appointments are for shorter periods, so future vacancies occur each year. Boards may not consist of less than five members, and boards of joint authorities must contain at least one representative from each participating municipality. Allocation of representation on the board of a joint authority is agreed upon at the time the authority is created and is specified in the articles of incorporation. If an additional municipality later joins a joint authority, the articles of joinder must specify the representation of the new member municipality and any changes in the board membership allocation among the existing members.
Terms.  Terms of board members expire on the first Monday in January. After a vacancy has occurred because of the expiration of a member's term, the municipal governing body appoints a member for a term of five years from the date of the expiration of the prior term.  These appointment provisions were amended in 1978 to prevent ‘lame duck’ municipal governing bodies from making appointments to authority boards for terms about to expire before a newly elected governing body took office on the first Monday in January. Board members may succeed themselves.
Qualifications.  An individual appointed to an authority board must be a taxpayer in, maintain a business in, or be a citizen of a municipality into which one or more of the projects of the authority extends or is to extend or to which one or more projects has been or is to be leased. Except for special service districts located in whole or in part in cities of the first class or on the board of a business improvement district of a borough, that was established on or before the effective date of this act, a majority of an authority’s board members shall be citizens residing in the incorporating municipality or incorporating municipalities of the authority.
