                         CHAPTER 24-S.F.No. 99 
           An act relating to towns; clarifying certain 
          provisions for the terms of town supervisor; providing 
          for the compensation of certain town officers and 
          employees; amending Minnesota Statutes 1992, sections 
          367.03, subdivision 1; and 367.05, subdivision 1. 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 367.03, 
subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
    Subdivision 1.  [OFFICERS, TERMS.] Except in towns 
operating under option A, three supervisors shall be elected in 
each town as provided in this section.  When a new town is 
organized and supervisors are elected at a town meeting prior to 
the annual town election, they shall serve only until the next 
annual town election.  At that election three supervisors shall 
be elected, one for three years, one for two years, and one for 
one year, so that the term of one shall expire each year.  The 
number of years for which each is elected shall be indicated on 
the ballot.  When two supervisors are to be elected for 
three-year terms under option A, a candidate shall indicate on 
the affidavit of candidacy which of the two offices the 
candidate is filing for.  At following annual town elections one 
supervisor shall be elected for three years to succeed the one 
whose term expires at that time and shall serve until a 
successor is elected and qualified.  Except in towns operating 
under option B or option D, or both, at the annual town election 
in even-numbered years one town clerk and at the annual town 
election in odd-numbered years one town treasurer shall be 
elected.  The clerk and treasurer each shall serve for two years 
and until their successors are elected and qualified.  
    Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 367.05, 
subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
    Subdivision 1.  The town board shall set the compensation 
of supervisors, town assessors, the treasurer, clerk, deputy 
clerk, if one is employed, the road overseer deputy treasurer, 
if one is employed, and other employees of the town.  In 
addition, supervisors, assessors, treasurers, clerks, deputy 
clerks, road overseers deputy treasurers, and other employees of 
the town shall be entitled to mileage for the use of their own 
automobile at a rate to be determined by the town board for 
necessary travel on official town business.  The town board may 
fix the hours of employment for town employees, and reimburse a 
town assessor for expenses.  
    Sec. 3.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
    This act is effective the day following final enactment.
