                  An act relating to towns; clarifying the procedure to 
                  fill a vacancy in the office of town supervisor; 
                  amending Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 367.03,

        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 367.03, 
        subdivision 6, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 6.  [VACANCIES.] When a vacancy occurs in a town 
        office, the town board shall fill the vacancy by appointment.  
        The person appointed shall hold office until the next annual 
        town election, when a successor shall be elected for the 
        unexpired term.  A vacancy in the office of supervisor shall be 
        filled by an appointment committee comprised of the remaining 
        supervisors and the town clerk until the next annual town 
        election, when a successor shall be elected for the unexpired 
        term.  Any person appointed to fill the vacancy in the office of 
        supervisor must, upon assuming the office, be an eligible voter, 
        be 21 years of age and have resided in the town for at least 30 
        days.  When, because of a vacancy, more than one supervisor is 
        to be chosen at the same election, candidates for the offices of 
        supervisor shall file for one of the specific terms being 
        filled.  Law enforcement vacancies shall be filled by 
        appointment by the town board.  
           Sec. 2.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
           This act is effective the day after final enactment.
