Provided, that of those first appointed one member shall serve for a term of two years, one member shall serve for a term of four years, and one member shall serve for a term of six years or until their successors are appointed and qualify. The members of the board shall serve without pay and shall file annually a report with the Spartanburg County Board of Control not later than the first of November of each year, showing all activities and disbursements made by the board during the year.
If at least twenty percent of the qualified electors residing in the district petition the commissioners of election by the first of September of any general election year, the commissioners shall call an election to be held at the following general election for the purpose of electing a member to the board to succeed the member whose term will expire during that year, for a six-year term. Thereafter, members must be elected in each succeeding general election for terms of six years."
