During regular meetings, the board of trustees may consider action on items duly presented before the board of trustees. During the regular meeting in January, the board of trustees will elect its officers and consider action of an organizational nature.

(2) Special meetings may be convened by the chairperson or by a majority vote of members of the board of trustees to consider action on specific items for which the meeting was called. A notice of the meeting, including a list of items to be considered, shall be conveyed to the members of the board of trustees at least three working days in advance of the meeting.

(3) Special emergency meetings may be convened by the chairperson or by a majority of the members of the board of trustees to consider action on specific items for which the meeting was called.

A majority of the board of trustees shall constitute a quorum. Should a quorum not be present at any meeting, a roll call can be taken and a notation shall be made of those present and those absent. The meeting may then be adjourned by those members present. Except as herein otherwise specified, no matter may be acted upon except by a majority vote of the whole membership of the board of trustees.
