Provided, however, that 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 four-year term. Thereafter members must be elected in each succeeding general election for terms of four years. The members of the board shall serve without pay and shall file annually a report with the governing body of Spartanburg County not later than November first of each year, showing all activities and disbursements made by the board during the year.
The reduction in length of term from six years to four years applies to the board members who are appointed on or after the effective date of this paragraph."
